Monte dei Cappuccini

A climb of 15 minutes from Turin leads up to the Monte dei Cappuccini (240m) and the church of Santa Maria del Monte. Built in 1584 to a design by the architect Ascanio Vitozzi, the church adjoins a still-working Capuchin convent.

Shalom again, Pietro.
If I lived nearby, I would be making that 15-minute climb often. A beautiful place.

These are indeed beautiful captures.

What a beautiful photo of the church of Santa Maria del Monte! Monte dei Cappuccini looks wonderful.

Hope you have a pleasant week.

Non ci andiamo da anni, ma a settembre ci torneremo. Un posto che fa stare in pace con il mondo, splendidi scatti.
Un caro saluto Pietro :-)
