Lerici’s Castle – Castello di Lerici, Italy

The most prominent landmark
of Lerici, the castle, is visible from all over the place but is worth checking out close up. It has spectacular views of the Gulf of Poets and is home to a delightfully wacky museum – there’s a gothic chapel, modern art sculptures, and a permanent dinosaur exhibit. A tunnel underneath it connects the waterfront to a secret beach and restaurant, and usually displays artwork from the local art school.

The Lerici waterfront is so pretty at night, and the castle is its crowning glory
It’s also the site of Lerici’s only Pokemon Gym (red post thing, top left), so there’s that

    It’s pretty cool having our own castle. I love our lighthouse, too. Good boy, Bosco.
