While Charlotte took a brief tour of the Temple of San Biago ( early 16th Century) I snapped a few shots while waiting for our lunch reservaion at La Grotta.

About here, we moved inside to finish our meal.  The garden started out lovely, but the sun got hotter and hotter.  It was our hottest day to date.
