๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น[ โ€ข POSTCARDS FROM SOMEWHERE โ€ข ]๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น . . . ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ CAMOGLI ๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿงก . Camogli is a fishing village and tourist city located in the bright blue Ligurian Sea, in the northwest Italy. Even though in the late Middle Ages the city was a considerable seaport, nowadays it lives mainly from tourism, as it is considered one of the most beautiful towns in the region. Camogli is a picturesque town with extremely high tenements clustered together fronting the sea, a bunch of multi-coloured houses, a picturesque harbour with fishing boats and a little fortress. The most notable of these brightly coloured buildings is that most of its hutters, decorations and sometimes windows are simply painted on the walls with great skill, planned perspective and shadows. Each one has a different colour. It had a crucial importance because colors once helped the fishermen to easier recognise his own house when he returned from fishing. The streets among the houses are narrow and some of them are even replaced by series of stairs. Regarding to the name of the town, one story suggests it comes from the translation that means โ€œhouses packed closely togetherโ€ because this is what you note when you walk among the alleys of this fishing village. But the most romantic story about the origin of the name is the one that says it comes from the combination of the Italian words case + moglie, meaning houses of wives. Camogli was always a fishing village and when fishermen sailed out to the sea, their wives were left at their homes, waiting anxiously for the happy return of their husbands. According to this belief, those wives, who looked from the windows searching boats on the horizon, gave the name of the town. . . . #liguria #sun #photographer #summer #italy #italia #igersitalia #igersitaly #igersliguria #igersnature #ig_italia #igers #architecture #architecturephotography #photography #urbanphotography #traveller #travelholic #mytravelgram #travelphotography #travelgirl #travelpics #instagramers #wanderlust #travelgram #instatravel #instaphoto #instapics #worldcaptures #photolovers #photography
