Gorizia tra Medioevo e Imperialità

The Venetian lion that controls the city

First stop at the Medieval Castle of Gorizia for the #italiagrandsketchingtour.

Here we are… first sketch of the Italia Grand Sketching Tour is Gorizia, city on the border with Slovenia and just half an hour drive from Trieste.

I have been only few times and I never came to the castle, to be honest. Unfortunately we could not go inside but I will go next time for sure.

This city has a crazy history… Venetian, Austrian, partly Yugoslavian… it is hard to keep track.

My sketch is the one of the entrance of the castle at the top of the hill. The Venetian lion  symbolize that it was built in peace time. Do you know why I know it?

Because its book is open
