From Gordes we went to visit one of the great attractions of the area, the historic village of Bories. For those who know the trulli in Puglia or the mitata of Creta is not anything to rave about, otherwise it is a nice place and it deserves a visit.

The St George’s Day, in Kastraki, the village attached to the rocks of Meteora, is a big celebration, following a tradition that comes from the times of the Turkish occupation. The youth of the village climb to the cave of the miraculous Agios Georgios Mandilas (of the veil or the handkerchief) to collect what remains of the handkerchiefs from the year before and to tie new ones.
Linz is a city that I found very interesting. Full of contrasts between old and modern tradition and contemporary art. In July, every year is held one of the most important festivals of street art, which I highly recommend not to miss for those who are in the area.
