Charles C.F. Greville in Convent of la Trinità, near Corpo la Cava - 24 April, 1830, in the afternoon
from Journal entry, 24 April 1830, page 344:
The road here is beautiful, particularly about la Cava. I walked up to the Convent of the Trinità; it stands on the brink of a deep ravine in the middle of the hills, which are tossed into a hundred different shapes and covered with foliage—a magnificent situation. The convent is very large, and well kept; it contains fifty monks, who were most of them walking about the road. Here were all the raw materials requisite for a romance—a splendid setting sun, mountains, convent, flock of goats, evening bell, friars, and peasants.
