I hope you enjoyed my last post about the wonderful Palermo, but now we are taking a trip down Gerace and the small picturesque Borgo Antico. Borgo Antico or The Medieval Town was our main trip, as the castle or "the town" is situated at the top of Gerace. I went with an open mind and little expectation on this trip, but was pleasantly surprised. Borgo Antico was adorably quiet and tucked away from the world, with a couple of inhabitants living in small picturesque houses. At times like these I wish I was in their shoes for at least a day, to feel the peace that they feel. Just like the rest of Italy, there is an abundance of churches (there used to be 128, but not all are remaining) and we visited two of them. I snapped a "quick" picture that you can see below of the amazing altar from the church of St. Francis that dates back to the 13nth century. When we were left with about an hour to just wonder around the village, we took the advantage to walk through every little street, even if that meant walking straight into someone's backyard.
And now I hope you enjoy the photos and until the next travel post!
