The canton Aargau
by Jorge Sanchez - 3 years, 7 months ago
Aarau is a lovely little town of about 20.000 souls that has many of its houses in the medieval downtown exhibiting beautiful gables with paintings and other ornaments. Even the McDonalds restaurant follows this pattern.
The Catholic Church, almost all painted in white colors, is also considered (along with the gables) a Swiss heritage site.
I walked along the shores of the River Aar and had another perspective of the city.
There was a tower with paintings and a clock, a library with monkeys painted on its walls, a theater that looked a palace, and many other wonders.
It was a pleasure just to stroll around looking all the time upwards, to the gables of the houses, and feeling the quiet atmosphere.
Late in the afternoon I took a train to Liestal, in the canton of Basel Landschaft.
