Medieval Borgo Papiano

On arriving in Papiano, after our trip from Borgo di Vagli, we rested before going out in the early evening light (the golden hour) to take photos of this wonderful old village. Unlike most of the old Umbrian towns we've seen, that sit on the top of a hill, this lies in a valley rising up the valley side. It looks like a hillside town that's slipped down the side of a hill to hide in the valley. 
The light is gradually changing the colours of the buildings .....  

 until at last the buildings take on a pink glow.

typical narrow lanes flanked by ancient doors and buildings
(look at the thickness of the doorway wall)

someone up there isn't pleased with the church of Papiano

The old station hints at the location of a spaghetti western
