The Grass of the Fortress

Fortezza Nuova, Livorno
Just outside the tunnel, a ramp lead us to the first level of the park inside the fortress, mostly grassland.

The same area from above, you can recognize the turrets and the palm tree at the entrance.

Another area on the same level, still closed to the public. In background we can see the octagonal dome of the church of Santa Caterina.

This is such an interesting place...and lots to see. It must have housed several hundred people.

It is simply brilliant to have reopened it.

In Jerusalem we never see such greenery in, around, on the old old places. I have to get used to such an idea.

Would be lovely to wander and explore here VP, especially on a blue sky day.

It seems to be a quiet place, good for a stroll.
