I have just returned from the most fantastic & extraordinarily trip to Italy one can ever imagine, actually the town of Triora is inconceivably beautiful, and my snapshots can in no way make the place justice.
Triora is a medieval citadel town, a hill fort, with a labyrinthic inner structure. The streets are all too narrow for cars, and there are steps and stairways leading in all directions.
My impeccable travel companions = my mother (who’s 70th. birthday we celebrated on our trip) & my sister. Here they are standing outside a beautiful doorway decorated with slate, an expensive stone in this part of Italy
As can bee seen in the above picture, Triora is built on a steep mountain-slope, making the access difficult; both for the enemies, and for the people living in the town.
