Monteluco 800 m.s.l.m. was a sacred mountain (Lucus) since ancient times, inhabited by hermits during the first millennium of Christianity.
Kingdom to the city from the spectacular "Ponte delle Torri" combines the city of Spoleto à almost entirely covered by a thick ilex than in steep slopes is monospecific.
In 1218 St. Francis obtained by the hermit monks of Monteluco the chapel of Santa Caterina, where today stands the Franciscan Sanctuary.
To see the church, dedicated to St. Francis and St. Catherine, the convent, and still the tiny cells and the stone used by the saint as a couch; the caves where they stayed several saints and the view of the magnificent valley of Spoleto.

certo che come sono francescani i vostri conventi, non lo è nessuno, qui sembra di ripercorrere i suoi passi, sembra ancora presente nell'aria.
Dice bene Luciano, la luce non era certo facile, ma sei riuscito a gestirla alla grande.

Hi Silvio, I like the Bell and the man and they both are under the arches that is why I found it very interesting to view. The picture is well exposed even under the bright sunny day. Like always with great details and clarity. Best regards

Fine exterior view of Franciscan Sanctuary, rough rock walls, and tall bell tower rising above the tile roofs.
And plenty of history going back centuries. Well constructed to have survived this long.
Thanks for sharing,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition.On nous offre le choix de passer sous l'arche pour entrer ou encore rester un peu pour admirer le clocher. Une belle gestion de la lumière difficile.

Another pleasing composition with excellent framing and exposure. The textural details are beautiful and depicted with great sharpness and the lone figure seen through the arches adds wonderful depth to the picture.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.
