Hi Silvio
An interesting photo of the town stretching up the hill side. Did you know that in Western Australia there is a town called New Norcia, named after this Norcia?

Default To ifege: New Norcia

Good morning Ian, New Norcia is the only monastic town in Australia. The place was named New Norcia, after Norcia in Italy, because there was a Benedictine mission to the local native Aboriginals, since 1 March 1846.
Ciao Silvio
