Mi piace in modo particolare il cancello da cui si entra. Sembra una finestra sul mistero..che poi è la vita.
Foto sempre ricche d'incanto antico.
Un cordiale saluto.
What an amazing church - and the backdrop is stunning Pietro!

Ah amazingly beautiful green mountains just by the gothic church San Saturnino, I just admire! Should I come visit the Susa Valley, a big desire fills my little heart:)
Have a very nice day, dear Pietro. Ciao for now.


The beautiful old church looks lonely. I'm glad you were there to visit and photograph it.

What a beautiful little place... :)

Bella questa piccola chiesa romanica immersa tra il verde delle montagne, un posto di pace ma sicuramente anche ricco di storia.

Un abbraccio Pietro e buona giornata!

How old and beautiful this small church is! It seems to be abandoned and nobody cares about it. Wonderful photos Pietro!

The church of San Saturnino looks beautiful, Pietro!
I would love to be there...
The entrance looks romantic and mysterious...

Have a nice day!

Hi Pietro!
Oh, it's a really old church!
I can't believe people built it about 1000 years ago!
No one can't go to inside it?
Nobody is here?

Amazing! Still standing strong.

Sereno week-end Pietro!

Ciao Pietro, buon fine settimana.
La pizza comunque rimane (una pizza) ;-)
Un cordiale saluto.

Wonderful shots. The church is located in beautiful scenic area.

Buon week end Pietro.

Mi chiedo perchè esistono le torri, per essere pìù vicino al cielo o guardare dall'alto la terra ?
Bellissimi scatti, come sempre
Buona serata Pietro :-)

So big and strong yet elegant. What a landscape, Pietro!

I love how you captured the expanse of the mountains. Lovely view.

Have a great weekend!

Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!

desolate yet impressive!

Buona domenica ;-)

finally getting to see some upclose shots of what's on those mountains. hoping to get to see more of these. i love old structures over mountains.

beautiful..i get a sense of peace when i see it :)

San Saturnino sits comfortably and ancient in its green meadow. The look through the gate lets you imagine the times long gone. Good times and bad ones, it is still standing. The scenery is also very beautiful.
The name is also interesting as it is a pagan name, but later I think there were some Saints. Historia e mobile.

Buongiorno Pietro e buon inizio di questa nuova settimana!

Ciao Pietro, il freddo è arrivato,ieri ad' Ala si è vista la prima spolverata di neve.
buon lunedi

what beautiful location. perfect spot for retreat. is the church abandoned? i ask because by the entrance the weeds are overgrown. i'd love to visit this.

Ciao Pietro, un saluto in attesa di tuoi nuovi splendidi scatti:-)

You make me ache to be in Italy :)

...grazie Pietro, buona serata :-)

Mi sembra di averla vista una volta ma é possibile che sbaglio. É stupenda questa piccola chiesa fra le montagne in mezzo alla natura. Il cielo é vicinissimo.
Grazie amico.
Ti invio un caro saluto

Hi Pietro! Wonderful! The bell tower is stunning!!

Blogtrotter Two is almost leaving Costa Smeralda. But still has some new pictures for you to enjoy!!! Drop a line and have a great week!

Looks old and quaint and still inviting to the eye!
Love your shot of the bell tower with the mountains and clouds as a stunning backdrop.

Pietro, very nice collection. The tower really stands out, especially behind this nice background. Anna :)

Pietro, expones aquí unos cuadros de una impresionante belleza, parece que la montaña está cerca del cielo. Desde España Galicia,
Un saludo muy cordial.

Gosh, that is exquisite. It looks so lovely and isolated!
