Bolzano - sunny Sunday morning after a rainy night

Val di Non - one more excursion

On the border of the village of Romeno, there is a little chapel. The origin of this chapel (St. Thomas and St. Bartholomew), situated between an apple orchard and a barn, goes very far in the past, maybe at the beginning of the middle ages, about 1500 years ago. The frescos inside (or better: the remnants of it) are about 800 years old.

Walking from Bolzano towards Renon

A look from the steep slope in the north of Bolzano back to the city center: the cathedral (and Waltherplatz)
This is one of the favourite silhouettes of the Tyrolean mountains: the Sciliar

Val d'Adige

Cycling southwards from Bolzano along the Adige river towards the Province of Trento

Haderburg (above Salurn): I took this picture in the evening sun - in the morning (as it is in complete shadow) you could hardly distinguish this castle against the rocks behind

Val di Non

Here we are near Mezzolombardo and from there, on the right, we enter the Val di Non

This area is renowned for the apples they produce here

Continuing to cycle in the surroundings of Bolzano

Swallows are gathering on the belfry.

Monticolo: this village is on the hill at the back of Vadena (see the previous post).
