We made a long drive yesterday to another city near Lake Garda. We also did a quite long walk because we couldn't find parking area near this tourist spot. The long walk was worth though because I enjoyed again doing photo shoots.
This is Castello Scaligero (Scaligero Castle) built on 13th century-15th century. The castle is bathed on all sides by the waters of Lake Garda, and on one of these sides was built, shortly after the construction of the castle, the dock, which once represented the place of refuge of the Scaligera fleet.
The Scaliger Castle of Sirmione is a fortress of the Scaligeri era, an access point to the historic center of Sirmione. It is one of the most complete and best preserved castles of Italy, as well as a rare example of lacustrine fortification. (info from Wiki)
The castle here facing the entrance..flocked with tourists.
Found this black bird nestling and taking care of its eggs sustained by this old wooden flatform that stays afloat on water, around the walls of the castle.
This view of houses is seen once you access the entrance. (in my fourth photo). The view is fronting the next real entrance to the castle.
Purple..purple! That's not me. (lol)
I just love this window view in one of the houses here, ready for Easter egg hunt!
Took a good shot of this little bird while having bread snack at the bench, fronting the lake and the castle.
Finally that's me having a good walk while hubby's taking the shot, as if I wasn't aware but I was..hahah!|
There is also an old church inside this village so we stopped awhile.
It's still cold all around but I saw some already enjoying a lick of their gelatos..yummy!
Just a view of this artistic bike while on our way back to the car...
