A Vacation in Saturnia - Day 2

Today was our first day to wake up in Saturnia.  But today was a busy day, so it's best to get right to it.  And of course, you'd rather get up early for something enjoyable than something dull.  But I digress.

We got on the subway for the second time to go to old city.  Old City itself doesn't have any subway trains or bus stops within, but there's a subway station just outside the borders of the district.

The townhouses that lined the city in the 1700s still stand today, and despite its age, it is still a vibrant neighborhood.  It is oftentimes full of tourists,  but there are still evidences of the local culture around the place.  The said "three spires" of Old City are possibly Saturnia's most recognized landmarks.  St Mary's Church, the State House, and the Labor Markets are those three.  They were finished in 1742, 1738, and 1748, respectively.

While we were visiting the Labor Markets, the skies opened.  It was raining, simply put.  Not exactly the weather you want to get caught in while sightseeing.  The rain can be nice and peaceful sometimes, but other times not.  The market was completely indoors.  It was built to be the main site of selling agricultural goods.  It got its name after the work that was put in to providing for the city, done outside of city limits.

While it was still raining, we went to the Museum of Saturnian History to complete the day's theme of history.  The museum itself is definitely of high quality, and recommended to any visitor to Saturnia.  The exhibits effectively cover the entire history of the city, from the 17th century to the present day.  The Neo-Classical building the collection is housed in is also great.

At night, the dome of City Hall was easily visible, but it was worth walking over to the plaza to see it up close.  The dome is around 300 feet, and is also a certain must see.
