    Default Little Church in the Woods, Battiglia Terme, Northern Italy, April 2017


    Hidden away in the woods on the slopes of a wooded hill between Battaglia Terme and Catajo, there's not much info on this tiny two-roomed church. It was probably used by the local farming community and when many of the farms were abandoned, the church fell into neglect. It is very small but a bit of a gem and enough bits and bobs of interest to merit a small report. No history whatsoever on the place, even after extensive searching.

    ..and other hints of its past miniature grandeur:

    And a hole in the floor down to a mini-crypt?
