Long Description:
In some pages and webs we can see that in this balcony was the scenes os Rossini's opera "Barbero de Sevilla" in 1775.
It is a balcony of a hotel.

"Although the story clings more to a legend than to reality, it is said that the beautiful Balcón de Rosina, located in a corner building in the Plaza de Alfaro, in the heart of the Barrio de Santa Cruz, was one of the settings in which Beaumarchais developed his famous opera 'The Barber of Seville'. Theoretically, it is the balcony to which Figaro advised the Count of Almaviva to climb, dressed in various disguises, to retrieve his beloved. Although nobody disputes the beauty of the enclave and the peculiarity of its history, what is striking is that the date of construction of the balcony is, curiously, later than the creation of the work. Either way, it's a magical place."

I stay here because I can ear to Conde Almaviva sing "Se il mio nome saper voi bramate, dal mio labbro il mio nome ascoltate. lo son Lindoro..." but the essence was there, but the sounds just came out of me.
