Esch-sur-Sûre Again

My mom and I made a quick day-trip back to Esch-sur-Sûre the other day.  You may remember it from our mini-Luxembourg-castle-tour of Summer 2013.
It's just a tiny ruin on a couple of hills in a picturesque little village.  You can see there are two parts: a round part on the left and a rectangle part on the right.  These are highly technical terms you needn't trouble yourself with.

Back on that late summer day, this was the very last castle we visited, so we didn't take much time there.  This year, we scaled that puppy!  Round part first!
up the first side of the hill

looking down from the round part onto the village and the rectangle part

looking behind us onto this statue
then back down, and up through the town to the rectangle part (when the sun came out, and it got less mystical but still lovely)

looking back at the round part
flying the Lux flag
I still really like this one upon second viewing.  So peaceful.

Based upon history, beauty & the numerous perpendicularities, I'd say it's a sure thing you'll return at some future date.
