A day in the Castle...

Hi to all!
Yesterday here in Italy was a National Holiday...
Usually every year this holiday means BBQ with friends and/or family in the yard or on the mountain...
This year unfortunalt weather was not good at all...the day before rained all day long and temperatures fell down...We got up yesterday morning with a very cloudy and dark sky...

So, hubby and I decided to spend our day visitin a beautiful Castle situated in a small town at about 25 km from here, Racconigi Castle.

When we arrived there, the sky was still grey and we got some drop of rain...it was a pity as the Castle has a great and wonderful park all around...
Later...the sun will return and so we visited both the park and the Castle.



In the park, there is also a nice lake...


As you can see in the picture below, there are 2 big nests on the top of this building that was...a greenhouse...
Those are Storks nests!!!! All around there and also on the Castle you can see them!!!



Beautiful Lemons Trees welcome you on the entrance of the Castle...


And finally...if you feel particularly romanthic (or...you just feel tired or don't like to walk...LOL), you can also do the tour of the park with the carriage (this is what the King and the Quinn usually did...I bet they never did all the tour of the park walking...LOL)


So, I have to say that it was a nice and interesting day...a bit different of usual...
Hope you enjoyed this photograpic tour too!!!
