Monastery of Santa Caterina del Sasso - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
The Monastery or Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso is set in a stunning position clinging to the rock face on the south-east shore of Lake Maggiore. Originally only accessible by boat or via a steep staircase down the cliff from 60m above, it can now be reached by a recently opened lift.
I took this view inside the church which is filled with ancient frescoes, and forms part of a series of 13th and 14th century chapels.
