Tempietto di San Fedelino

Novate Mezzola, Italy

The Tempietto di San Fedelino is a 10th to 11th-century small, Roman Catholic sanctuary or church, located in a remote rural site at the south shore of the River Mera. The small church is made of local stone and has a rounded apse. It still retains some 11th-century frescoes. The frescoes resemble those from the apse of the church of San Vincenzo in Galliano (circa 1004–1007).

Luogo antico, legato a storia e religione. Prototipo del Romanico, raggiungibile solo via lago o per il sentiero che parte da Dascio

Molto bella, la passeggiata per raggiungerlo è piuttosto semplice da fare coi bambini, in ombra e piana(solo tre punti un po' più difficili per chi ha difficoltà motorie). La chiesetta è bella, affrescata, con guida che spiega. Costo ingresso 1 euro, bimbi gratuito. Possibilità di raggiungerlo anche con imbarcazione.

Sentiero e zone circostanti infestate da serpenti e bisce di vario genere. Se ne vedono anche di ammazzate da precedenti escursionisti. Non adatto a chi ne ha paura.

Medieval Walls of Avila

The city walls of Avila were built in the 11th century to protect the citizens from the Moors. They have been well maintained throughout the centuries and are now a major tourist attraction as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can walk around about half of the length of the walls.

The layout of the city is an even quadrilateral with a perimeter of 2,516 m. Its walls, which consist in part of stones already used in earlier constructions, have an average thickness of 3 m. Access to the city is afforded by nine gates of different periods; twin 20 m high towers, linked by a semi-circular arch, flank the oldest ones, Puerta de San Vicente and Puerta del Alcázar.
