passageway

Castiglione del Lago, Umbria

soldiers could fire on attackers from this passageway inside the defensive wall of the Rocca del Leone, built during the 13C...today it serves as the entrance to the fortress, which overlooks Lago Trasimeno

Well done. An interesting story. Very narrow area. Possibly made so that they couldn't retreat.

Great lighting and perspective together with this architecture and the slight bend give this image an aura of mystery. Very nicely shot. "V"
