Travel: Tirano, Italy Day 2

Good Morning from Tirano.  Yesterday was an exciting day for exploring the ruins of ancient castles and enjoying the beautiful fall landscapes.

Here are some of our favorite photos from the day.

Castello Vecchio, Grosio built in 1150 and completed in 1375.

We are having a blast and enjoying great weather!

We also explored the only Royal Palace in Tirano, the Palazzo Salis, home to the Count S. Salis of Switzerland.  Some of the Palace has been renovated to its original condition and is currently open to the public as a museum.  It’s quite interesting and unique.

Elaborate ceilings in virtually every room.
Beautiful gardens featuring a Cedar of Lebanon tree over 200 years old.

  1. Wow! Interesting places you visit– off track for most visitors to Italy.
    Interesting attribution to a Swiss noble, as CH did not even exist as a country until centuries later. Switzerland was simply a collection of Celtic and Germanic tribes.
