Legend:

In 719, Torcato , was martyred along with 27 other men when he wanted to stop the arab army from Muca, from Tarik. According to legend, his body was discovered under a pile of rocks, the site where today stands the Chapel of the Holy Source. According to one legend says that a blind man ‘saw’ a falling star in the direction where today stands the chapel, at the time, the village was very curious of this happening,so that they decided to pick up hoes and cut the brambles that after they would burn. Then they discovered a body which would prove to be S. Torcato. Then they decided to grab a pair of oxen and remove the body from the site. But the problems started here, because when the oxen arrived at a certain place, they decided not to proceed further, and the people decided to build a church right there, which later would be the Monastery of St. Torcato . And even today there lies the body of S. Torcato, exposed to the devotion of all believers, lying between them thank him.

I like what you've done in the first one...colour, texture and most of all the angle.
Actually it even made me wish to see a building built like this, in an angle - tilted on one side and with one tower taller than the other ...And the whole building pointy in a forced fake architecture (no parallel walls but coming together to a point).
What I mean is to have it built exactly how you show it in the first picture. It will be unusual and cool.

These are amazing photos of an awesome place! The clouds really accent the beauty of the stone work in the chapel - and the details are wonderful. Thanks for a lovely post, Ricky.
