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.
I had polenta and cod fish for lunch. I liked it.
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
There are various shops, some cafes and restaurants under the porticoes.
Have a look at my previous post about Marostica to learn more about this town; if you like.
