  • Beautiful place
  • There are places like this that you discover by chance: you go to take pictures of the Balze and then you notice an imposing building and you ask yourself: "what is it" and go to explore ... You leave the car in front of the gate and don't you know if you can enter, then you notice a gentleman, ask permission ... I love adventures like this! is better than any museum, any organized tour, these encounters, discoveries, surprises ... This Camaldolese monastery has (I hope it still has! because I was the last time ... oh my, I don't think so! in 2017, 31 December 2017, last sunset of the year ...) its keeper. the guardian angel. I will not tell you here the story of the monks, how they collected water, how the sundial works, he, the keeper, will tell you everything. He also took us to see his brother's sculptures in the olive grove and then he gave me the black cabbage from the garden .... The wonders of casual encounters in Tuscany ...
