Subiaco – Monastery of Saint Benedict (Exterior) (Part 2)

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! ☺️πŸ’ͺ

  1. Spectacular, Flavia! You do visit the most stunning places. That opening shot is superb πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ How are things with you?

    1. Thank you Jo. I am fine, accurately avoiding people πŸ˜… 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 dearπŸ€—

        1. I understand and I totally agree. We seem to be far away from a solution πŸ˜– somehow I think we will have to learn to live with it

        1. I am glad you like the places where I take you JeanneπŸ€— 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 πŸ˜‰πŸŽ‰

  2. 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 CadaquΓ©s. And after a spiritual morning, you can go down to the town and have a delicious arroz a banda.

    Great photos!

    1. 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❀️
