Is that village Castelluccio a little left of center?
Has any of it been rebuilt since the earthquake a few years ago?
That was one of my favorite places on our Italian trip in 2004.

Thanks guys :) And to Eric's question: I was there in May 2018 and the attached pictures shows first the landscape with Castelluccio in the background and then a crop of the same image which shows the destruction. It will take years before this is rebuilt.

Thanks for those, Hans.

We stayed for two nights in the Taverna in Castelluccio. Lovely people. And we brought home a bag of the wonderful, tiny Castelluccio lentils, which we cooked up to celebrate the next New Year's Day.

Thanks for the comments and Eric, I'm glad you liked it in Castelluccio. A wonderful village in an amazing place. From there I shot the following picture of the lental fields below.

I agree. About the fields, anyway. Never been fond of lentils.
