weekend





Viterbo, in the Lazio region, it's a beautiful ancient city full of History, and one of the best preserved medieval towns in central Italy. And of course, there are the little towns and villages that are part of the province, in one of these, we have our holiday home, so this weekend, we went there to see about the works we are doing (new roof and facade) and on the way to Rome, we stop near Viterbo to visit my brother in law and his family. As you can see, we had lunch with our little nephew and niece; the spaghettis with mussels were delicious! After lunch, with the children we went for a walk around the town, and they pointed about some funny things they saw (or imagined) seeing those old doors that seems to have a face. Take a look at the last pic: Yep, it's what it seems to be! You know, in these old towns, there were not bathrooms in the houses. It was only after the second world war that they started to built them, and as the homes were small, they built it outside, as sort of balcony. I don't know the story about the one on the pic ( maybe came down the balcony?!)lol
