What a magical place this is, it looks vy medieval in how it is so compact and self contained, no hint of of suburbs or expansion, just the original beautiful town. The sense of scale you captured in placing it in this vast landscape like this is really magnificent. The light also could not possibly be better.
Thanks as always, have a great Saturday.
Best wishes from Ireland.

Hi Silvio, Excellent POV which enable us to see the entirely village and its surroundings. Great light and tones along with natural colours. The place seems very calm and quiet. The residents properly will live longer than those in the city. Very attractive scenery with lot of green around. Thank for sharing

bellissimo pov dall'alto, il paesino arroccato fa la sua bella figura in questa vallata.
Sembra che ci siano un bel po' di persone in visita, si notano molte auto parcheggiate lungo le strade, probabilmente sono in molti a cercare la fioritura in questo luogo incantato. Se non sbaglio, proprio questo giorno, c'era anche il mio parrucchiere.

Un autre très bon point de vue sur cette jolie petite ville accrochée à la colline dominant ce beau paysage vert.

stupendo punto di vista dal alto, ci offri una composizione originale in cui la cittadina ha per sfondo i magnifici prati e non il cielo. Il senso di altezza e di spazio sono affascinanti, meravigliosi i dettagli e le tessiture, deliziosi i colori in un ambiente tutto naturale. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona domenica,

Castelluccio is an impressive historical village rising above the pastoral countryside of green fields, clinging to the hillsides.
Would be enjoyable to travel here via auto then stroll the pathways, soaking in the history and culture.
Thanks for sharing,
