A great day today. This picture above was taken this afternoon when I hiked up to the grotto. This little garden is at the base of the statue in the next picture - a "pieta", the traditional image of Mary holding the dead body of Jesus after he was taken down from the cross. This one is different because Mary Magdelene is included in the scene, in her usual position at Jesus' feet.
|This is the "pieta" at the edge of the terrace, with the Dominican Priory behind, and all of it nestled on the cliff.|
Here are a few more pictures from today.
