Sulmona sights

Other things to see in Sulmona are the churches and this 'old man' fountain, looking more like a lion's head.
Ovid was born in Sulmona and the men cluster round for an evening chat. We love seeing everyone out on the streets in the early evening- young in prams, walking and on bicycles, elderly walking with younger family members or friends, people in wheelchairs enjoying the Spring weather and us two Aussies who got lots of stares.
This grand entry is in an old baron's home and now houses a retirement community in Sulmona. We were invited in to photograph the original plaster ceilings.
