A Glimpse of An Ancient Image of Norbert

Today we had the opportunity to tour Orvieto and the beautiful Cathedral of Orvieto with a tour guide, but before we went up to the hill-side town, we had the opportunity to visit a five star hotel that once was a Norbertine Abbey in Orvieto.  It is here where the second oldest depiction of Norbert is as a fresco in the sacristy.  Unfortunately because of its age it is quite distressed.

Here are some pictures of the old Abbey and the Abbey Church – more will be coming as they load, sorry the internet connection is really slow here as well.

  1. Orvieto has to be my favourite cathedral facade. And a beautiful city too.
