Capitola Venetian

I have to do justice to the ‘little Italy’ part of my previous post Capitola Village and its little Italy. So here’s posting some pictures of the Capitola Venetian, the Mediterranean-style hotel that I said I couldn’t take my eyes off.

I haven’t given up the idea of spending an evening at the Capitola Venetian. When I actually get to do that, I’ll bring back pictures of all the architectural details I can get. Till then, I’m going to be drooling over these images.

      A 'peaceful' place it is. That's right, there was an image from the same angle in my previous post about Capitola.
      There are some places in India that look somewhat like this with all those colours; like the houses you generally see in hill-stations, right? Out here this multi-coloured property stands out like a piece of seaside Italy. It's out-of-place in a nice way 🙂
      Thanks Deb. I actually have a long way to go. I would love to work on my photography. Thank you for appreciating the effort. 🙂

      Thank you Mr. Dasgupta. Clever, isn't it? I believe this came about as a result of a Mediterranean revival project some time in the 1920s. Now it seems like a quite a big attraction in a small seaside village. (It's a quiet place, tho').

      Thanks Ramakanth. It really is a beautiful place. The colours stand out against the blue sea and other buildings that are painted in relatively sober colours.

    Great! I am not getting blind! The pink and the blue house DO look like made up of jelly and candy and other sweet stuff! See, another blogger has also called it surreal! 😀
    It must be a beautiful place to be Dee, as in the pictures at least, time seems to have stopped here. It reminds me so much of my native place in the sense of a close-knit neighbourhood, because of the alley perhaps!
    A great post! 🙂

    It is such a pretty sight with all those colourful walls, the Mediterranean architecture and the flowers that pretty up the place. We recently went there again and it was just as gorgeous.,

    Nice to see you back here, Kokila. <3
