This church is beautiful. It has a Della Robbia too. Stunning ceilings. Amazing! The tour round is very informative and worthwhile.

It was cool in early June, and smoke was coming from some of the little buildings in the monastery as we picked our way down. There are signs reminding everyone to keep silence. A path not taken.... …
