Old House

This is just a house I think to be interesting. It is definitely a very old house. The round little tower is the stare case. This is something they did in the middle ages. The front has been fashioned in the 1700's, the white front on the ground floor looks like an extension made in the 1800's for a shop. I know that the back wall is made of a wall of a monastery which used to be on that site. In the shop beside this building you can actually see the wall with some artefacts of long ago.

From the front, see a tiered tourist trudge with his camera..

The tower is nice and I always wanted a house with a tower.

I like the tower staircase as well.

I am still looking for that tiered tourist... I am expecting someone to come in three parts - like an American wedding cake. Maybe a tired typer wrote this post. :-)

This house reminds me of a mad scientist's dwelling, with a missile silo on the side, ready to left for Andromeda or something like that.
Nice catch anyway!
