I visited the church to give thanks for what I have. I also asked to be forgiven and to abandon past painful memories so that I can enjoy my present life and strengthen my immune system.

Stayed across the street from this beautiful church that is lit as beautifully outside at night. Lovely inside and as with the other 16th century churches huge. The Virgin Mary was lit with lights over the altar.
