This painting is all about landscape shaped by the past. The massive fortifications are the story here, built to repel invaders but now, with their solid beauty, just a part of the whole picture of sky and sea. As a tourist you stand and wonder about the tales these walls could tell, yet there is an overwhelming sense of calm and quiet, a suspension of the bustle of the town built behind them.
