Prachtig wandel gebied en aan de andere kant van het kasteel ook een mooi fiets gebied. Aan deze kant gebleven want hier is het rustiger, maar aan de andere kant heb je nog een mooie molentje met waterrad. Hier een mooi wandel gebied, dat je nog voort kunt zetten in de bossen aan de overkant van de rijksweg. Een mooi kasteel, blijft jammer dat je daar niet in de tuin kunt lopen.

Along the river IJssel, in the town of Laag Keppel, is starkly hidden behind fences and "no entry" signs, Keppel Castle. Founded around 1300, it had quite a turbulent history.

You can not walk freely here, you can see the castle from a far but there is no way to get close and admire it. I would have no clue about the inside but that might be worth it. They accept guided tours in some seasons.

Late Baroque Town of Ragusa

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily, including Ragusa, were all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the earthquake which took place in that year. They represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building. Together with seven other cities in the Val di Noto, it is part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In 1693 Ragusa was devastated by a huge earthquake, which killed some 5,000 inhabitants. Following this catastrophe the city was largely rebuilt, and many Baroque buildings from this time remain in the city. Most of the population moved to a new settlement in the former district of Patro, calling this new municipality 'Ragusa Superiore' (Upper Ragusa) and the ancient city 'Ragusa Inferiore' (Lower Ragusa). The two cities remained separated until 1926, when they were fused together to become a provincial capital in 1927.
