I am not a pious person. There have been though some places where I have felt sense of intimacy and depth. These sensations aren't necessarily related to religious places, but on some occasions it feels as if there were a certain aura hanging over a particular spot.
This tiny ancient church (founded in the late XII century), about 15 min. away from home, is a place I have visited twice, mostly driven by photographic curiosity.
During my latter visit, a sense of awe and reverence filled me while I was alone in the chapel. I'm grateful for it.
