Beautiful Church adjoining the Fontana d'Ercole The Church is interesting inside but I preferred the view from outside with the beautiful small garden right in front of it and the Fontana d'Ercole in its middle. We had a beautiful weather in September, not to hot in the morning and strolling the streets of Notto we came to a stop in front of this garden with the facade of the Church. It was a beautiful view. I have attached several pictures to give you a glimpse of it.

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
