The castle of Castellammare del Golfo in the #italiagrandsketchingtour

This city reminds me of my youth. When I was ten there were only letters to communicate and you could exchange them throughout the country. It was very different from e-mail. Do you remember?

In that period I had a Pen Friend from here and I was always very curious of the place. She always told me that it is a beautiful place, especially the castle of Castellammare del Golfo and now that i have seen it I totally agree with her. Castellammare is a very particular city. It is build along the coast, developed in small roads that run up and down the hill, with great views of the sea. I believe in summer it must be a blast. It is in my list of wanna go back to.

This is the view of the castle overlooking the sea, with the Arabic and Norman style mixed through the Centuries with newest styles and architecture. A joy to the view and a joy to my brushes!
