Too high

This was too high and steep for us, we couldn't get into it to see it. I was able to take these photos using my zoom lens. In the olden days they would carve little niches on the outside, some kind of hand and toe holds, to enable them to climb up. These have all been washed away by the weather. But with ropes and the right gear one can still climb up into this church. The frescoes are magnificent. How do I know? I've seen pictures. You wouldn't see pictures in official books and magazines. The only way to view this and the many other hidden churches is to go to this website This is church number 78 on the website.
