Easter at the Monte dei Cappuccini

A view of Turin from the Monte dei Cappuccini (240m) and from the Church of Santa Maria del Monte.

The Church of Santa Maria del Monte (1584), in honour to the Virgin Mary, by the architect Ascanio Vitozzi.

The presbytery and the tabernacle (1638), designed by Amedeo di Castellamonte and Luca Longo respectively.

A thought and a prayer for the victims of the terrible earthquake in the Abruzzo region in Central Italy.

Have a good Easter everybody

Buongiorno Pietro sempre belle le tue foto quella con la croce che si contrappone al panorama è molto intensa come immagine.
Noto che l'interno della chiesa è simile a quella del convento dei camaldolesi che è qui vicino casa mia.

Un abbracio Pietro in questa giornata di dolore dove il pensiero sarà rivolto li dove gente disperata sta per dare l'ultimo saluto ai propri cari.

~Here's my wish Easter fills you with hope, joy and warmth, Pietro.~

Piétro, may your city be forever under the protection of this cross ! That's an amazing picture.
It means a lot.

Concerning the Church and the Presbytery, you, Italian are the masters of these hamonious buildings. Every where we go in your country, we watch such gem.
Every details are so elaborated.

And, yes, a prayer for the families that have lost a member in this tragedy, as well as for those who have lost their house and their whole life souvenirs.

I've found your Prime Minister a little bit ironic speaking about homeless persons. Hope they will remedy quickly to the precariousness of these families.

Have a nice Easter celebration.

My thoughts and pray are with all the victims of the earthquake that struck the Abruzzo.
Great photos as usual!

What a beautiful, beautiful place. I love your sanctuaries, your church exteriors, your views.

Beautiful church.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with those affected by the earthquake.


Beautiful. I especially love the layers of mountain in the first photo.

Buongiorno Pietro, un sorriso e buona giornata!
