Santa Maria of Cerrate Abbey
Italy
Santa Maria at Cerrate Abbey in LECCE (Apulia - Italy) The abbey was founded at the end of the 12th century by Tancredi d'Altavilla, Count of Lecce. Legend has it that in this place the Madonna appeared in Tancredi, between the horns of a deer, hence the name (Cerrate or Cervate). The town was an important religious and cultural center until the sixteenth century, later transformed into a farm. In 1711 the abbey was sacked by the Turkish pirates and fell into a state of neglect, continued until the restoration of 1965 edited by the Province of Lecce. The complex remained the property of the local authority until 2012, when it passed to the Italian Environment Fund. Around the abbey was created in the old farm building, the museum of the arts and traditions of Salento, with ancient hypogean mills. Famous popstar Madonna was fascinated by her beauty during her visit in last summer (2017) Source: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abbazia_di_Santa_Maria_a_Cerrate Opened to pubblic visit from 08 April 2018

More About Italy

The name "Italy" is shrouded in mystery; some etymologists trace it to a Greek word meaning "the land of young cattle."Italy was fond of Jupiter and Mars from the very start, Jupiter for fatherly good luck and Mars for war!But it all began with Rome. Rome was founded by Romulus and Remus who were sons of Rhea and Mars.The twins were abandoned at birth out of a fear that they would grow up and later overthrow Amelius, usurper of their grandfather's rightful throne.Wrongful mis-doings most foul! Treachery and sabotage!! HOW would these two blessed infants make their way in such a world?As it turns out, the twins didn't have to make their way very far, because one of them killed the other one and then they weren't twins anymore. But that happens later.First they got rescued by a she-wolf who suckled them with her milk and raised them as her own until they were discovered by the shepherd Faustulus.Faustulus fed them meat and bread and also raised them as his own until they were old enough to return to Amelius and hack him up as planned. They reinstated the grandfather Numitor to his rightful throne and went off to celebrate by starting a town of their own.They chose a hilly area where the mama wolf had saved them from certain death in the barren wilderness and began scouting locations.Romulus liked one hill. Remus liked another. The circle of crows like Romulus' hill, so Romulus killed Remus and named the town after himself. Thus Rome was born and Italy with it.Text by Steve Smith.
