Place of Worship
“This 8th century abbey is continually evolving and is not only a wonder in itself but houses art exhibitions and stages concerts. Caune is home to world famous quarries of red marble and is copious adorned with marble sculptures.”

Church
“A beautiful chapel set where a stream emerges from a gorge. Originally sacred to Artemis and now, Mary, in the old tradition of such water sources being associated with healing etc. Picnic area shaded by nine mature plane trees. Interesting for rock climbers but a stroll up into the gorge is interesting enough.”
