    This is the bell tower in fron of the old church of Parkano. This is separated from the main building. It seems that exists a strange story with this bell tower in the past.

  • The town museum

    This building is located right in the middle of the road. Imagine a roundabout and imagine a building in the middle. its what happens with this museum. The town museum at the moment I was there was closed. The building looks quite old. Its construction is from rocks and the roof is from wood. This building looks god with the surrounding square.

Parkano Warnings and Dangers

    by johnsakura Written Jan 29, 2005

    In the winter all rivers get a very strong string of water. As i am very curious of course I wanted to go closer and closer and closer. 2 dangerous things:

    1st-if the wood i was walking would break i would fall into the water;

    2-all the way to get there was kind of tricky. i couldnt see where i was going because of 70cm of snow... i canot see if theres a bigger hole in the floor etc...

    on the picture there some kind of passage to the other side where exists a old wooden brigde that i would have loved to go to. i was very racional in that moment and came back... :o( ;o)
