Schallaburg's Terracotta Gallery

The Renaissance castle of Schallaburg, about an hour and a half west of Vienna, is known for its gardens, architecture, art exhibitions and its amazing terracotta arcades. Built in the 16th Century, these 1600 terracotta tiles were formed into an impressive gallery of characters.

I love the jester:

I thought you might also like to see some of the frescos in the same courtyard as the terracotta figurines. Lovely!
