We began taking pictures immediately
Everywhere you looked, there was something new to marvel at, whether it was a Madonna shrine in a bathtub
or a donkey drinking from a (different) bathtub.
Mosaics were everywhere, covering walls and archways, fountains, floors and even the composting outhouse.

All in all, it was quite a magical place to visit. I hope to have a chance to go back there some day!
