All things old

Some buildings here are very old and in ruins.

Other buildings are very old, but still inhabited and used.

There are ancient walking signs, and very old cauldrons recycled as plant pots.

Everything here is aged - and after a walk up and down one of the mountains, my legs feel pretty ancient as well.
