The castle floating in the air — the ancient city of Bailurichio

Have at least two impulses in your life
Once for love
A journey to talk

In the past, a Japanese tourist, in order to find his creative inspiration, actually traveled long distances to Italy.
Finally, he came to a mountain in the north of Rome and found an ancient city standing on the top of the hill-Civita Di Bagnoregio.

Bailurichio

And this ancient city is special because it has only one iron bridge connected to the outside world; whenever it is surrounded by mist, the ancient city seems to float on the clouds.

The Japanese traveler was fascinated by the spectacle in front of him, and got creative inspiration from it, and created his popular set of famous Japanese animation works-“Sky City”. Yes, this traveler is the famous Japanese animation master-Hayao Miyazaki.

The city of the sky-the ancient city of Bariloche, Italy, was built 2500 years ago. It is located on the top of the mountain. It is connected to the outside by a narrow long bridge. Both sides are valleys. “Castle in the Sky”.

The “City of the Sky” in Hayao Miyazaki’s animation world looks like this.

Today, what we are going to take you to see is the prototype of “Sky City”.

Bailurichio

All modern transportation cannot enter the city, and the only connection between the outside world and the ancient city is a walking path.

Bailurichio

This small town with a palm is less than 300 meters long and only 200 meters wide, like an island city suspended in the air.

In the misty early morning, standing at the bottom of the mountain and looking up, the top of the mountain is surrounded by clouds and mists, and the small city is looming in the clouds.

Bailurichio

Bai Lurichio was inlaid on a hill hundreds of meters away,
Surrounded by low-lying river valleys, the mountain city is steep and steep,
In the foggy season, the town is wrapped in clouds and fog,
Only the building on the top of the mountain is seen from a distance like a city above the sky
It is not an overstatement to use “island”

Saint Vincent, medieval Italian theologian and philosopher was born here
He gave the most appropriate definition of the country: the city of death
Because the ancient city is on top of a fragile volcanic tuff
Rocks around the cliffs of the ancient city keep falling off due to erosion

Bailurichio

No one knows when the ancient city will collapse
Maybe just a rain
Maybe just a small mudslide
Will swallow up all this beauty
This old castle and Hayao Miyazaki’s Prada
Very likely to become the city of the sky in people’s memory

Bailurichio

Although the ancient city of Bailurichio is called an ancient city, it is not included in the World Heritage; however, it is listed by the World Cultural Assets Fund as one of the 100 endangered places in the world.

It has neither buildings, museums, palaces, walking routes from other tourist attractions, nor even special restaurants and souvenir shops selling crafts. The house in the ancient city is like a dwelling in a deserted garden, which makes people feel a little withered and deserted.

The history of the castle can be traced back to 2500 years ago. It used to be a bustling city. Later, due to plagues and natural disasters such as earthquakes and mountain erosion, the residents slowly moved away from it. Until the end of the seventeenth century, it became a lonely city The ancient churches and mottled houses in the city seem to be remembering the past.

Entering the city gate, there is an authentic medieval castle in front of you: horizontal and vertical alleys of varying lengths, elegant flowers and plants, asymmetric structures, mottled walls, ancient and simple doors and windows, arches The stone-built door lintels, the different staircases, the lazy cats, and the different style houses are crowded in this not wide space, telling the history of Ruyan.

With the attention of the media and the involvement of research organizations and environmental protection organizations, the government has begun to attach importance to this corner of the public. The formerly desolate and desolate town has become the darling of the film and television industry. “Cruel” and “Puppet Adventure” have chosen this place as the location.

Bailurichio

Under the action of nature, the small town “disappears a little bit every day.”

Take a chance and take a look
This indisputable ancient castle
Dreamland full of animation masters
Full of unrefined elegance
Disappeared in dreamlike fog
Dreamland Ancient City
Bariloche
Don’t miss it, sorry to stay empty
