    The Blue Chapel forms part of a monastery in Italy. The area above the altar is painted blue and the high level windows flood the space with light and create an amazing blue glow behind a suspended figure of Jesus on a cross.

    The chapel is beautiful. It is a large space with ornate decorations, and all the seats are still in place. Alcoves at either side contain figures of people in glass boxes.

    The rest of the monastery is quite stripped and decaying. There are a large number of rooms in the building which would have mainly been used as living quarters.

    Thanks. I'm not often keen on religious places but really enjoyed this one.
