Castle mound dating back to centuries. XIII, whose name derives from the diminutive rock, built at Mt. 793 s. l. m., overlooking the Valley of the Tessino, with keep and tower, formerly also called Rocca Oddi.
Belongs to the territory of the municipality of Cerreto di Spoleto, which was fought on several occasions from Spoleto and Norcia,
He remained faithful to the city of Spoleto during the revolt of the Nera Valley Castles, resisting, in 1523, armed bands of ice axes and Petrone Brancaleone Vallo.
You can still see the different phases of construction of the town: the early medieval settlement around the parish setting, the next castle, the remains of a fort and the two gates and the sixteenth century village built along the road.
The fabric is very compact construction of the castle in recent times has been largely restored and healed without altering the original structure, while the agricultural village partly replaced by new buildings has lost many of its features.
The country is home to an agrarian community, formed in recent times, after a long legal fight against the City of Cerreto, who contrasted the recognition.
The parish church of St. James of the sixteenth century frescoes and paintings from the eighteenth, a Baroque wooden altar from St. Nicholas and a wooden crucifix from the XV century Madonna del Verde, a small votive building on the way to Monteleone ..
At the ancient road, now annexed to the cemetery, but once isolated, is the church of St. Nicholas, a small Romanesque building, with chancel covered dome and belfry on the front, low-key rustic derived from Santa Maria of Ponte. Frescoes dated 1529, on the right, the representation of Rocchetta.

You use nice the arches in foreground as frame, together the cobblestones that us lead to the black cat and the stair.
The picture has a nice depth and perspective.

A delightful shot and, I see, you had an unexpected character in your shot.
Your use of the arches creates an irresistible guide into the shot, where the steps and the two closed doors grab our curiosity. The details are sharp and there are many fine textures to help us understand the location.
Have a lovely w/e,

Nice arches in the foreground and cobbled road leads us to the black cat and the stairs in the back. Good POV and nice composition, beautiful colors and good sharpness of the image make him attractive.
Have a nice weekend

J'aime beaucoup ce petit quartier sous les belles arches. Le chat noir ressort superbement sur fond de mur rose. J'aime beaucoup la gestion de la lumière.

questa fa parte della serie di quelle che fanno balzare dalla sedia per la loro perfezione. Una luce incredibile, morbida e luminosa, gestita in maniera eccellente che aiuta ad entrare in questo vicolo per ascoltare il silenzio del borgo.
Cioa e buon fine settimana

Caro Silvio, mi sembra quasi di immaginare si cammina per quei piccoli sentieri e cercando di trovare l'immagine amaing a prendere.
Non c'è dubbio che questa è una foto favolosa con tutti quei piccoli dettagli che hanno timbro di Silvio e la sua grande personalità fotografica!!

ha parte che la foto è bellissima, per il resto c'è poco da commentare.
Il gatto sembra quasi un graffito.

Ta collection de ruelles pittoresques augmente encore d'une unité, le chat noir étant la cerise sur le gâteau dans la composition.

Without cat photo would be very ordinary. The text accompanying the picture is great!
Regards, all the best

Ciao ami Silvio
Excellent le cadrage des doubles arches au toit couvert, la vue sur la maison aux jolies portes brunes, le joli plus avec la présence du chat :-)

Charming view of this old corner, a cat as a bonus. Nice place.
