Rennes, France-10 28 2021:People passing in front of the Jacobins Convent, also called the former Bonne-Nouvelle Convent, which is a former religious building and a former barracks, located in the city center of Rennes. In 2018, the building became the Rennes Métropole convention center.

The convent of San Francisco, located in the urban area of Pontevedra, is one of the most popular and well-known buildings in the city. It was built during the fourteenth century and according to tradition, was founded by Francis of Assisi while taking the Portuguese route of the Camino de Santiago.

EVEUX-SUR-ARBRESLE / FRANCE - JULY 2016. View of the modernistic late 1950s monastery Sainte Marie de La Tourette. The monastery consists of four perimeter heavy rectangular structures that create a closed interior space. The one volume that is compact and rests on the edge of the hill houses the church and the church sacrifice, while the other three wings that are created are raised with pilotis of many different shapes and accommodating living spaces and all the rest functions of the monastery.

La Verna, located on the Apennine ridge between Casentino and Valtiberina, is first of all a reference of faith and devotion to San Francesco. In fact, this Sacro Monte is, after Assisi, the most famous Franciscan place and its fame is worldwide. This is because the Poverello of Assisi, who went there for periods of prayer and penance, received the Stigmata on 17 September 1224 at Verna.

It started with 5 nuns and a novice; but, step by step, they were increasing. It was here that the Clarisas were installed for years. The San Miguel earthquake of 1717 shattered the roof of the convent. The nuns had to go out during the 26 years that the repairs lasted. In 1734 the new convent was inaugurated; but with the later earthquakes 1773 and 1874 the convent was completely ruined and so it continues today. The story struck me.
