Monreale a "few" years ago



No trip to Sicily is complete without a trip to Monreale a small town overlooking Palermo famous for its church and more so for it;s cloister. Each pillar is decorated differently in stunning mosaics. No two are alike. The Church itself is also very beautiful. The structures date to the early twelve hundreds and always  been centers of pilgrimages and later on tourism.  I have posted recent photos of Monreale since I try to go there every chance I get, but these date back to the summer of 1969 and were shot with the Canon FT and the Canon 28mm F 3.5 FL on Agfachrome  50 that shows some fading. But they have assumed an old look that I do not find unpleasant.
