  • 😘😍 facinante
  • Beautiful view.
  • Beautiful place. Indescribable with words. Spring day, in the morning, cloud, fog and clouds covering the peaks. Road with curves and curves towards the hot springs with lush vegetation, wet by morning drizzle, against silence total, suddenly truncated by the howl of a Fox hiding in some space that mysterious and spectacular place. Pure nostalgia. Film. Simply beautiful... October 2014.

  • Excellent! Very nice location and beautiful history. It will be better when they finish the restoration.

  • Cute place. Well maintained. The Chapel is also an interesting site to visit for its antiquity.
