Harriet and I both love history and art and we love handmade things versus a machine built buildings. This not studying things out of books that other people have written for you to read and understand but it is really about actually walking through, photographing, sensing and reflecting on what you actually see in unique three dimensional ancient buildings and the art that is part of the building. Then you can then discuss with other tour members or with friends when you get home.

Some of the buildings were dating back to 1250. There was a sign for a building in 1504.
