Castello del Valentino

I have shown many times How Valentino's Castle looks like from the other side (see HERE) but rarely, by night, how it looks seen from the other side of the river Po. It was one of residence of residences of Royal House of Savoy and in 1197 it has been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. More on Wikipedia HERE

Ho mostrato più volte come il Castello del Valentino appare dall'altro lato (v. QUI) ma raramente, di notte, come appare invece visto dall'altro lato del Po. E' stato una delle residenze di Casa Savoia e dal 1997 è stato inserito nella lista dei Patrimoni dell'Umanità dall'UNESCO. Maggiori informazioni su Wikipedia QUI

Sembra il castello delle fate...

Bellissima foto notturna

I think illuminated buildings are prettier than in daylight.

It looks like a fairytale castle at night, especially with its reflection on the water. Beautiful!

Grazie Eleonora !

Dina, you're absolutely right and this is one of reasons I prefer to take photos at night

Hilda, you said in English what Eleonora said in Italian. It means that we deeply would like to see almost once in life a real fairy tale castle :-)
