The Monastery complex of Saint Benedict stands above the “Sacro Speco”, a grotto where Saint Benedict spent the first 3 years of his life as a heremit.
The Monastery begun life in the IX century and as you can see it is still well preserved.
This is still the Exterior Part.
Tomorrow we will enter! ☺️💪

Spectacular, Flavia! You do visit the most stunning places. That opening shot is superb 🙂 🙂 How are things with you?
Thank you Jo. I am fine, accurately avoiding people 😅 but the endless need of beauty in my life push me to get out and visit places, I can’t resist! What about you? I hope that you and your beloved ones are well. Have a nice day, my dear🤗
Fine here, too, but always worrying about family in the UK, Flavia. No end in sight sometimes! 🙂 🙂 Take care!
I understand and I totally agree. We seem to be far away from a solution 😖 somehow I think we will have to learn to live with it
Thank you Ishita 🤗 I was sure you would have loved it. This is soooo Italian ☺️😉
Thank you Jeanne, I am glad you liked it 🤗
You always “take me” to such fabulous places. 🙂
I am glad you like the places where I take you Jeanne🤗 the truth is that even when I am alone I always feel in good company and I know that when I go back home and post about my tours there are fellow bloggers, like you, that enjoy the getaway and it always makes my day 😉🎉
We you are doing an excellent job. Keep on doing what you’re doing. 🙂
Thank you Jeanne 🤗
You are very welcome. 🙂
Yes, the monks certainly knew how to pick the best spots. Next time you are in Spain, Flavia, be sure to visit Sant Pere in Tarragona. Another wonderful monastery, with views down to the bay of Cadaqués. And after a spiritual morning, you can go down to the town and have a delicious arroz a banda.
I have been to Tarragona but never to Sant Pere. I will add it to my list! To tell you the truth I should move back to Barcelona because of work. I am home working but from Rome. I haven’t done it yet because I am scared of the virus. What I can tell is that Spain, for an Italian, feels just like home❤️
