Torino Details (some)

Someone once described Torino as a city that wouldn't over whelm you with grand scale sights, but would win you over with it's small details. I would certainly agree with that. It's not that there aren't enough big sights, there are, like the Mole Antonelliana, symbol of Torino and at one point in time, the tallest building in Europe. And quite a bit of interesting architecture through out the central part of the downtown area.

So when ever we find ourselves in Torino, I always find myself snapping away, photos of many of the small details that for me makes Torino so charming. I have added 3 of such interesting details that I have snapped along the way. I think I will from time to time add on to my interesting details that I find myself drawn to and share them with you.
Tell me what you think.
I particularly like this lamp that isn't exactly dragon nor gargoyle, but mythical I think and certainly eye catching. Turin has a history of being on a magical meridian intersection, but that is a subject for another day. Today I just wanted to share some images to make you a tiny bit more curious about Torino, and if you want the full scale guide to what to do and see in Turin, have a look on the Turismo Torino site for more details.
