... As we climbed and left the coast behind us, the road became less difficult, less bends and even I was able to glance the vegetation either side. This is autumn in these parts and chestnut trees were everywhere. Showing their autumn colours and gently shedding their leaves in the gentle breeze, it was just a picture.

Next day we choofed off to claim our miracles from Saint Frances of Assisi, who founded the Franciscan Religious Order in the town in 1208.
