This is how I spent my first twenty minutes in Massa Marittima, a bright jewel in the crown of Tuscany.
I visited it for the first time only last month when my parents were here. It made quite an impression.
Today let me show you how Massa greets you: with a square, teeming with stairs, important buildings and on that Friday afternoon a minimum amount of tourists, which made me feel as if they had just built it especially for us and nobody knew about it yet.
Twenty doors photos from the first twenty minutes, then, since – as it is around here – everywhere you turn there is at least one to five. Doors were enough for two more door posts from here.
I shall not give you any info on the buildings, just soak it all in as I did. The last six photos were taken in a (not so) hidden courtyard behind the church with the statue in the middle. I don’t know who he is but he seemed cheerful and I was so impressed that I gave him a thumb up for his town. Imagine if someone took a video.
