We went to Frontone to have lunch with Juan Ramón and Mari Carmen, two guests/friends from Spain. The day was not sunny but Frontone is quite photogenic even if the weather was not perfect. Frontone is an amazing tiny fortified village topped by an imposing castle. This has been an important fortification during the Medieval and Renaissance times and the Castle has been designed, among others, by the famous Architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini.
BTW, I tried my Bread and butter pickles today and they are soooo yummy, my dad who has a sweet tooth and doesn’t generally like greens a lot just LOVED them!

Stunning view from the Castle (even in a cloudy day)
I don’t know if you will see this but I love your blog. How do you get to be in Italy? My name is Robin Frontone and I am the daughter of Italian immigrants who came from Tricarico, Italy. We were there only a few years ago and met a cousin. Very beautiful. Someday, I hope to come back and see this place. But we are decendents of the Castle Frontone. My grandfather’s name was Rocco Frontone. They settled in Ohio
Valley and I was born in Ohio.
