|I've put this pic into Photographers Gallery / History / Europe as it didn't belong with the prehistory photos... unless I can be persuaded otherwise ;)|
|Thanks Jim. The citadel is 15th century, built on a Roman, and possibly pre-Roman fortress - but the history is not well documented (as you will find if you raid the web)|
|Corte is a fantastic place, the views from the citadel are absolutely stunning - this is a great picture, and transported me back to Corisica for a moment, so thanks Ethelwulf!|
| Breathtaking...I wish I was standing atop the rocks looking over the scenery ;)|
