Rocca d’Orcia is a typical medieval town: stone arches and a large old cistern with Tintinnano Fortress watching over it. It changed hands several times. Legend has it that it never fell through force, but due to traitors who opened the gates at night. In 1207 in the Borgo, for the first time in Europe a charter was issued to define the duties and rights of the people toward their lords:Charta Libertatis. Documents and myth point to the fact that Saint Catherine of Sienastayed here in 1367, receiving the divine gift of writing as an illiterate right here. #toskana#history#iamtherewhereyouarenot#clerksaredooropeners#history#medieval#wonderful_places#travel#family#holiday#patina

It was a magnificent time and some of my favorite images to date have come from that trip. Here are a few of my favorites. I’m a Colorado resident and fall in CO is pure magic. Honestly, I’m torn...What’s your favorite area for fall colors???? Leave your comments below!
