Space for one

Father Jerome built his hermitage in a traditional architectural design but on a scale of one and it is the only example of the "Tiny Monumental Monastic" style that we have seen. The massive walls, flying buttresses, domes, and tower are impressive and formidable, even in the diminutive range. The going is tight for even average sized visitors and we had to stoop and scrape our way through narrow corridors and low door ways. Vinnie sustained at least one closed head injury which still provides him with penance.
