Journeys to Italy!

Allow me to introduce you to il gatto di San Pietro—the cat of St Peter. In the small seaside town of Portovenere, just south of Portofino, there is a 12th Century church that was built over an ancient pagan church, and in it lives this cat. Just like the church itself, il gatto di San Pietro is black and white and well looked after—an old local man feeds him every night, while during the day the cat graciously, if not proudly, shows tourists around his sacred home.
