Location: Centola      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Italy      Date: 12 August 2014

San Severino di Centola is a village founded in the 10th-11th century, practically unknown.
The original settlement, located upon a hill, was gradually abandoned during the end of the 19th century after the construction of a railway line. New houses were built in the valley, just below the hill but closer to the railway. Nowadays the ancient village is a ghost town and a preserved heritage, because of the conservation status of its medieval structure.

Then explain to me how you did it.

With the hint SSdC it is easy to find by picture comparisons. I used the term ghost village and did add a geographical term to narrow it down. I think without the aid I would not have found it.

@Giuseppe, it's a very complicated algorithm ;-)
There are some steps: A little bit of knowledge about Italy, the right search term, patience and the love to solving riddles and last not least the most deciding step: A lot of luck!

Dear Werner,
your algorithm is perfect. It is very useful to have all the features you have listed. But the last step is often the most useful ;-)

Dear Christoph,
you're probably right, it wasn't impossible, as I'd thought.

As I learn, much more to explore in the South. Cheers, Martin

Allora da diligente panoramista sarai andato anche al Santuario di Novi Velia, sulla cima del Gelbison...

Sė, sono stato anche lė, ma la visibilitā era mediocre.

Io a Pasqua 2008 mi ero piantato nella neve a circa 1400 metri di quota. Per dire del livello di informazione, giú in paese mi avevano riferito che il santuario rimaneva aperto tutto l'anno, invece non era niente vero. Sono tornato giú sotto un diluvio, poi a un ristorantino mi hanno praticamente messo dentro la stufa...
Queste sono le avventure di Novi Velia.
