Another visit to Marostica.

sunny

Yesterday I was going to spend a day in Feltre. It is a beautiful town in the Veneto region. I have been lots of times there.

Unfortunately the only road I know to Feltre was closed. So I had to choose another destination for my day trip. I didn' t want to go back home!

My partner suggested to re visit Marostica and so we did.

It is a nice town located some miles from Bassano del Grappa. I wrote a post about this town here on Travellerspoint some time ago.

Marostica has two castles. The lower one; situated on the main square and the upper castle. This one overlooks the town.

A chess turnament played with persons is held every two years in this town. Marostica is mostly popular for this event.

After a stroll under the porticoes and some window shoppings I visited a couple of churches. Then I headed to the upper castle.

I found a path to the castle and I had a very long walk. You have to walk uphill to get to the castle.

I didn' t reacht it because I was tired and it was around lunch time. I suppose I wasn' far from the castle.

I enjoyed a lot the view from the wood. Yes, I found myself in a real wood.

When I visit Marostica I usually have lunch at Caffè Centrale. It is one of the cafes - restaurants which stand under the porticoes in piazza Castello.

After lunch, I went for a long stroll and at a certain point I discovered part of the walls of the castle and also a road that should takes to the castle.

I also discovered a tower house. I am quite sure it is inhabited. This house is part of the walls.

There are various porticoes in Marostica, Even the main square; piazza Castello is surrounded partly by some of them

I like those views from the wood so no matter if you didn't reach the upper castle, it was still worth the walk :)

Beautiful colors in the hills. What a lovely day for a walk. It looks like a lovely town.
