The Way of St. Francis: A View Through Two Countries

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Were it not for the line of curiosity seekers, we might never have found the peephole we were looking for.  It’s there, just to the right of the white hat brim, looking very much like a round keyhole.  It is, in fact, known as The Aventine Keyhole and is part of the property owned by the Priory of the Knights of Malta, one of the last surviving orders of knights left from the Crusades.

It was the rumored view through this peephole that led us to climb Aventine Hill to the piazza Cavalieri di Malta.

Was it worth it?  I don’t know…what do you think?

    CATHY WAS VERY INTTERESTED IN THE KEYHOLE VIEW. HER FATHER WAS FROM MALTA.
