Sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca

The sanctuary of the Madonna di San Luca is pretty impressive, there is an arcade stretching about 2 kilometres up a steep hill (you can see it in one of the photos from the tower {next post}). Pilgrims used to crawl up there apparently, now people run up and down it for exercise. I climbed up timing it to reach the sanctuary at sundown. Alas even though it was a beautifully clear day, the clouds rolled in to steal my last hour of sun…
