Don Donovan's World - The Romanesque Church at Loppia, Tuscany

Ramblings of a much published New Zealand author - 26 September 2012

Leaves From My Sketchbooks. 38. The Romanesque Church at Loppia, Tuscany

These drawings were made at different times and from different angles. The glebe and precinct were deserted except for a rather dishevelled looking mongrel apparently guarding the heavy, bolted door of what seemed to be more a dwelling than a church.

It's very old, 11th century, I believe, and makes a wonderful subject which explains why I went back again.

There's an ancient mule track bridge nearby where I and my companion played Poohsticks.
