And then downhill into the large village of Ardez.
Gallery: June 20 — Ardez 1
View of Ardez on approach. The defensive Schloss is visible up on the outcropping in the back.
Unusual black trim.
I still can't get over the hilliness of this square.
Here the faux-stone edges are even brought into relief rather than simply painted.
Very complex this one.
Nice contrast between the white and the maroon.
Another with relief stone.
The Adam & Eve House on approach.
The Adam & Eve House straight on. Amazing piece of work. Look how the windows and door are integrated into the design.
The blindingly white church.
Nice geometric elements here.
Every shutter is a different color even!
Another mountains-through-the-alley shot.
A pretty pair of projecting windows.
These look a thousand years old.
The ruins of the Schloss. I don't know what happened to it. Maybe the Hapsburgs happened to it or something.
Outlying farm shed.
