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.

The street.

Here the faux-stone edges are even brought into relief rather than simply painted.

Very complex this one.

4752.jpg

Nice contrast between the white and the maroon.

Another with relief stone.

The Adam & Eve House on approach.

4756.jpg

Steep site.

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.

4760.jpg

Nice geometric elements here.

4763.jpg

Every shutter is a different color even!

Another mountains-through-the-alley shot.

4766.jpg

A pretty pair of projecting windows.

4771.jpg

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.
