The town seemed to end as we rolled into the parking lot.
"Is this it;" I asked aloud I, and thoroughly disappointed as I had planned photos for this town.
"Maybe we should drive back and go right instead."
We parked next to an ATM and decided to walk. This turned-Out to be a good idea. Although Pyrgi is a large village, the town is intentionally built with only toggle two main entrances. A block Within, the town, like a classic still life , emerged in front of us.
Whole town in A black and white, intricately decorative tiles, like something-Out of a MC Escher painting. The facades of all the houses, the bellies of the balconies, are all adorned with this Mesmerizing tile.
Although the tile is purely decorative, thinking of Pyrgi's history, one has to wonder if the tiles, like the stripes of zebras, are there to confuse predators.
Still vibrant and lively, this village is a testament to the perspicacity and the sheer creativity of humans.
