We will go on with our tour of Maremma (a part of Tuscany) and today let me bring you to tge Monastery of San Bruzio.
It is a rare example of Romanic Style, hidden in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by fields… that in my humble opinion makes it even more interesting.
It has been built in XI Century but its origins are still controversial.

There’s such beauty in decay. I think of all the long gone people who worked on this, and we can still appreciate what they did, even as it softens and crumbles.
Time is ruthless but they have made an excellent work if it still survives after 1000 years. How many today’s construction will lasts that long? By the way I have an idea, it might have collapsed because of an earthquake. There was a part on the side that was splitted into 2, detached, and I have seen the same effect before in other damaged buildings in Italy
It must once have been very beautiful. Still is! 🙂 🙂
