Soiano Castle

Soiano, Italy

Soiano Castle overlooks the village of Soiano del Lago. It was built already in the 10th century against the Hungarian invasions and was also the meeting place for the heads of families in Chizzoline and Soiano. In order to oppose the feared Savoy army a further gate was constructed to close the castle. Currently the manor is once again the property of the Commune.

La costruzione , di aspetto decisamente medievale sì presenta parzialmente restaurato con delle bellissime mura Merlate, al suo interno vengono allstiti ed organizzati spettacoli di vario genere , a cominciare da concerti di ogni tipo tenuti da artisti di vario genere , oltre che spettacoli teatrali e proiezioni di film , a volte anche per bambini. All'interno delle Mura possiamo trovare anche un fornito servizio di ristoro con bevande , che funziona perfettamente , per tutto il periodo estivo , durante gli spettacoli.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
