Sunday Walk – March 9, 2014

The other day was a brilliant day of warmth and sunshine, so I decided to try to walk up to the Castle and to the Renghera…or the second tower:

The Castle from Arco

The Castle from Arco

Last year I showed you the walk up on another Sunday Walk last June.

As I got nearer the castle, I decided to take a break near a fountain and then do the last legs of the walk through the olive grove avoiding the paved path:

This took me pretty close to the approach:

Finally the Castle proper…I actually took oodles of photos, so here I have to decide which ones to show for today…not easy!  But we’ll start from the lawn and go up to the Renghera, which was where a large bell used to be housed, and was used to call people to  harvest or into the castle if an enemy was approaching.  The valley below the Renghera is named after our river, Sarca and it is known as the Lower Sarca vally

Hope you enjoyed this bit of a walk up to the highest tower of Arco’s Castle!

Have a great Sunday, Bastet!
