il-Madoffi!!!!!!!!!!!
hahaha because cars were a rarity ... go and explain to that driver that there might be another car coming up :lol: Or maybe it was one way :lol:

Look at the sides ... it looks like a fort....
Do you know that the belvedere used to be part of a private garden?

Were cars still so rare in 1956? I mean, there are two in one photo. :P

I've heard about the garden. I think it was in the centre of it?

Yeah what you said about the fort struck me as well. The right side still looks a bit similar with the tennis courts now (it's at a lower level than the street) but the left side is completely built up.

I noticed one more difference: the trees on the pavement aren't there. Did they think that all those fields could be replaced by planting a tree every couple of metres on the pavement!?

EDIT: actually I think I got the sides mixed up. The statues suggest that the church is where the camera is (the photo was taken in August, coinciding with the village feast). I thought it was on the other side when I wrote the post.

Amazing. I'd do anything to drive in that street in the second photo (I'm the rare breed who actually enjoys driving) and trek in the rest.

Fixed :D

It's a petrol-heads dream. Minimal traffic, great weather and an amazingly breathtaking backdrop. But there are areas up there where there is only one road in the entire region and if there is landsliding, you get stuck, sometimes for a week or so even.
