Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

I found it incredibly difficult to decide which photograph to use as my main post, which all relate to St. Francis of Assisi in Sorrento. So I am going to post all three!

I very rarely post photographs of church interiors, so that one won but, I'm sure other members may prefer the workshops.

This is the interior of the church of St. Francis. The original church probably goes back to 14th century, as it is proved by the wonderful St Francis Cloister, next to it, which is still kept almost unimpaired in its 14th-century style. (I will show this asa workshop)

The Church of San Francesco today is relatively different, because it has been subjected to numerous renovation and reconstruction interventions over the years.

The cloisters are really beautiful, full of historic atmosphere (wonderful for photographs) and have helped to make the church a favourite venue for weddings. We saw three, one every day that we were there!

Outside the church is a statue of St. Francis, which will be my second workshop offering!

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
