The pictures below are taken from 'Thomistic places' provided by some of our contributors (or those who accompanied them on their journeys). The more recent pictures, which are from the places of St. Thomas’ birth and death respectively, are simply found with captions. For older pictures, which are certainly just as noteworthy, you can click on the link for a gallery.
