Marble Floor at Montecassino
Marble Floor at Monte Cassino

Old.  Worn.  Beautiful.  Destroyed and rebuilt many times.  Leaving the Almalfi coast, on the way to Rome, we stopped here and looked at what remains, or has been rebuilt, of the first Benedictine church and buildings.

It’s automatic, almost, to look up, at the amazing heights of these structures, and I did.  I also looked down, a lot, and it was rewarding.  There’s a book, I’m told, of collected floor photos.  I’ll give you a sampling as we go along.
