Founded in the early 13thC by the Augustinian friars, evicted from the city of Jerusalem, after it fell to Saladin, the first church was established under Aimery Lusignan (ruled 1194-1205). The ecclesiastical building we see now has undergone many changes and been called by different names. It has been “Our blessed Lady Mary of the Mountains”, “L’Abbaye Blanche”, (The White Abbey, so named after the White Canons from the order of St. Norbert), “Abbaye de la Paix” from which came the Venetian corruption of “Bellapaise” that has changed little in the 21stC.

Superb picture, however, I'm afraid it looks like it's been too over-denoised for me. 9.
