Canyon Guard by Burtn Canyon Guard by Burtn
Very old house in unusual position. The old road is leading through the house, by lack of other possibilities.
Großarltal, Austria

Ist das ein Abhang auf der linken Seite? Wenn ja, dann hat man wahrscheinlich vom Haus aus einen guten Blick.

:)Das Haus liegt in einer tiefen Schlucht, außer Felsen und Abgründe sieht man hier nichts. Es war eine Mautstelle, wo man für die Benützung der Straße zahlen mußte. Das war im 16.Jahrhundert, alles schon mal da gewesen;)

How odd! (Not your picture, the concept, but I suppose one merely adapts.) :)

:)You are right, the funktion of the building was very close connected to the road. It was built in 1566 and in use till 1990.

for some reason I feel like I've seen this house in a movie
think it was from the 60s or 70s
something about leading an elephant over the Alps

Hi:wave:, this road was replaced in 1990 by a modern road with big bridges and tunnels. Until then it was the only connection for the people living in this valley to the rest of the world. It was a very dangerous road, especially in winter.
