Day 49 – Viverone to Santhia – 16kms

Leaving the beautiful Viverone lakeside this morning. The sun was shining, the lake was calm and all was well with the world!

On the way out of Viverone we met up again with Eric who was enjoying sitting beside the lake completing his Sudoku.

We walked onwards in the direction Of Santhia and enjoyed this wonderful view.

Along our days walk we found these lovely wild flowers.

Beautiful climbing roses often grace ordinary walls.

Peony roses grow and flower well in this cold climate.

In Flanders fields……

Inside the church in Santhia.

The church here was founded by the Franciscan’s.

Evening mass was celebrated in the Piazza Rome – just outside our Pilgrims accommodation. It started at 8.45pm and continued till 9.45pm. lots of singing and amplified music.

The mass is almost ready to start – and most of the towns dignitaries will be here tonight.

Even the birds up high seem to know something special is happening here tonight.
