Originally added by Jason Hatfield

A medieval church, a beautiful verdant valley, and the stunning Dolomites for a backdrop, it doesn't get much more incredible than this!

Santa Maddalena, also known as St. Magdalena, is a picturesque medieval church sequestered in the northern mountains of Italy. The Odle Mountain Group of the Dolomites tower above the surrounding valley and provide an incredible backdrop for images. To reach the best vantage point to photograph Santa Maddalena, start from the spot marked on the map and follow the small trail a short way up the hill.
