Vizzata is one of the tiny hamlets that make up San Cassiano.
Rain clouds threatened to make their way across the mountain behind the village the afternoon I was there, but the rain held off long enough for me to have a look around.
I parked my car at the car park at the bottom of the village as I couldn’t see a road in. The little path into the centre was lined with pretty gardens and flower filled pots.
Vizzata is very tiny. I don’t know how many people live there, but I suspect it is not many. There are some very interesting buildings, including a few renovators’ delights.
There were some very tired cats resting in quiet spots.
All of the mountain villages in Bagni di Lucca have beautiful views, and Vizzata is no exception.
Don’t miss Vizzata on your travels around Bagni di Lucca.
These are all amazing photographs, I loved them all. But but you can guess, especially with the photographs of the last part I fall in love 🙂 Thank you dear Debra, you did amazing set. Have a nice day and weekend, love, nia
I know you love cats Nia, so do I. This village had some beautiful lazy cats.
I really like those buildings, and then you went and showed some cats! Thank you. 🙂
There is no shortage of either in the mountain villages.
The list of places to visit in Bagni di Lucca is endless
I know, it has taken me a long time to visit all of them. I think I am just about there.
I would love a renovator’s delight in a place like this Deb! I love the details that caught your well-trained eye too….
There are many empty houses in these villages just waiting for someone to come and love them.
A beautiful village, Debra, and great photos. I particularly like the fountain, where I guess that the local women used to do their washing.
It would be one of the wondeful old washing tubs. That must have been fun in the warm months with everyone gathered around to do their washing, but very cold in winter.
Thank you, amazing photos again! Curious about the gate, seems quite grand for a small place like Vizzata. And the green leafed plant growing on the wall is unusual?
I think San Cassiano is beautiful, if the goats don’t stink too much a beautiful area for a long walk and a picnic
I was curious about that gate too. The plant growing out of the wall is a caper bush. They seem to grow very well without soil, amazing. You can see a lot of them on the walls on the way to La Villa in summer.
Thank you, I have never see caper plants before and imagined they would grow on a bush. I wonder if wild capers taste different…. Mmmm.
Love the kitties and the fog!
We have both in abundance in Bagni di Lucca.
Great photos Debra….love the flowers and renovators opportunities…and the views…!!!
If you were looking for a quiet, peaceful life, these mountain villages could be just the thing.
I’m reliably informed that there was a Vizzata Festa last summer, although I was’nt invited.
Its a very exclusive affair i’m told, with invitations being issued strictly on a need to know basis!
One of the lovely villages that make up the Controneria. Thanks again for the great pics.
I wonder how big the festa is. Vizzata didn’t seem to have many residents.
I think it was a Festa around a very small table!
I’m sure it is great fun anyway.
Great pics…. must be great there!!!!!☺
Our mountain villages are beautiful.
Cappella looks a lot like Vizzata….. they’re both great hamlets.
