Castle Caso is still surrounded by walls and the urban, largely restored, has major architectural elements of high quality. Interesting is the dual gateway with covered area recently restored, the hinge between the old medieval town and the more modern buildings sprang up around the parish church of Santa Maria Assunta.

At the end of the country, near the present cemetery, is the Shrine of Our Lady of Grace shrine built as an extension of country of the fifteenth century with the appearance of miraculous to a child of the place, Lady on horseback. The interior is decorated with frescoes dating ex-voto for the most part in the sixteenth century by John Spain and his school. Not far from the village, on the road to Gavelli, is the Romanesque church of Santa Cristina country. The interior of this church is completely covered with frescoes dating back to the votes from ex-XIV-XVI centuries and depicting the patron saints and biblical scenes, according to the simple popular language.

From this picture I can tell spring is not coming yet. I like the angle you took this picture. When the hill turns green and trees with leaves, It will become more beautiful.

I like the upward point of view and the allocation of space to the tow prime elements of the composition. The eyes move naturally up the frame toward the focal point offered by the tower. Pleasing low light and muted tones, very good sharpness.

A fine photo of the pretty village on top of the green hill. The road climbing up the hillside creates two fine diagonals. There is a beautiful yellow line of sunrays around the small round tree near the lower corner.

Caso seems to be built on a good place when you consider the view. I can imagine this is a nice place with interesting architecture and probably some good restaurants. Fine capture from this spot, with a good overview of the surrounding area. The sunrays on the tree is a fine eye-catching spot, tfs!

classico stile umbro, le facciate delle case e il loro arroccarsi sulla collina, sono un esempio che si ripete nel paesaggio di zona, un vero piacere per la vista mentre si attraversa la regione.

The distance between the field and the town is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colours of the buildings of the town. A peaceful scenery, have a nice day.

Nice view of the town atop the hill. Like the upward pointing POV here which has given the town a dominating position in the frame. Beautiful natural colours and light, thanks for sharing.
