New Norcia

Great free campsite on the Monastery oval, just down from the Abbey Church and across the road from museum and hotel

Window in Marian Chapel

Just for the contrast! All the bins around the Abbey had sharps containers attached.

Abbey Church - very simple inside - we went to Vespers on Sunday evening - around 10 monks present and same number of visitors - it was lovely that we all sat in the choir with them

site of one of the "mission cottages", Skye beside it gives some idea of size.

Just 2 days here at New Norcia Monastery town
