Cortona and the Monastery of Sant’ Antimo

While staying near Cortona… (below is a view from Cortona)

…we went to the Monastery of Sant’ Antimo to hear the monks chanting. I made my first video clip and posted it on YouTube. It is a small compilation of images from around the monastery and video clips (shot with iPhone) of the interior and the monks chanting. The link to the video is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsTu62hGPhs

The following is a series of images of the monastery.

After visiting the monastery, we stopped by the ruins of an ancient bath complex that was built around a hot spring. Although most of the complex was gone, the unusual turquoise colored water was still flowing.

    It’s interesting that there are still monks living in a monastery in the middle of the countryside … how medieval and utterly charming. That turquoise water is amazing.
