Photographer's Note

The upper section of the "Large Arcade" of the square of Telč, a UNESCO town in the Highlands.

Most of the houses in the square have these arcades (porticos), which most likely were the idea of the Italian architects brought in around 1550 to rebuild the castle. These architects were subsequently hired by the local burghers to work on their houses, too. The arcades provide wonderful shelter from the elements and a nice place to sit in small cafes.

If you wonder whether there is also a "Small Arcade", yes, it is on the opposite side of the square. "Small" refers to its lenght, as it is shorter or, in fact, cut in two by a street that leads onto the square.
