Abbazia di Santa Maria a Cerrate


I have visited a place that does not have a Wikipedia page in the English language. I am really unsure how to continue. Whenever I think of Abbey of Santa Maria di Cerrate I can smell lavender. It didn't smell of lavender there, but it had the same peaceful vibe. Like a lavender. (Really?! Is that what I am going for here?!) Next to Casalabate and Lecce (Puglia, Italy). We found it by chance. The oasis of peace. Which reminds me that I have always had a soft spot for churches in Italy (well, since that one time I went to Rome many moons ago).

Maybe I secretly wish this place shall never get Wiki-famous. Selfishly so. Somewhere out there (it's gonna be so packed with tourists one day).
