Again with the hill terracing.

Back side of one of the buildings on the village streets.

North face of the building? No problem! Slap a huge sun design on it.

Incredible small-scale detail here.

4784.jpg

The ghostliest portal yet (i.e. next to the actual one).

This one is very refined too. Note the dates: 1605 and 1704.

Another hilly intersection. Wild.

A simpler façade, but still quite nice. (Is that a roof cutoff I see up and to the left of it??)

This building is completely shaped by the streets.

Ardez is nothing if not sectionally fascinating.

Coolest Sundial Award.

The horizontal slats on the front of the shed follow the slope of the hill.

Another tower, with house.

Half-timbering, quite unusual for the Engadin.

View back up from down closer to the train station.

The railroad & highway looking up the valley.
