Duomo e Porte Palatine

On the left the Cathedral of Torino and, on the right, Palatine Towers that were one of four city gates to the Romanesque structure of Augusta Taurinorum the Romanesque city actually known as Torino.

Alla sinistra il Duomo di Torino e, alla destra, le Porte Palatine che vennero costruite nel I secolo a.c. Erano uno dei quattro ingressi alla struttura romanica che prendeva il nome di Augusta Taurinorum, oggi conosciuta come Torino.

Normally I'm not a fan of night-time illuminations, since they blot out the sky, but this is really beautiful. The coloured buildings seem like stage scenery against a black backdrop.

What a stunning view. Even through the photo, it has a majestic air. You take the best night photos of anyone I know!

Two wonderful structures and even more fantastic all lit up at night. The history of Torino is just mind-boggling to me.
