I have just noticed that Google has added 3d view of Cefalu. Unfortunately no views of the Abbey, but a few interesting ones from around the town:-

Here is the football stadium - the Abbey of Thelema is behind the white van in the center of the screen:-

The local cemetery where Loveday was originally buried:-

View of La Roca:-

View of train station, where Loveday & Betty May alighted:-

View of new town buildings:-

I did double check them, but apologies if they don't work!

Actually, part of the roof of the Abbey can be seen in this one:-

Hmmmmm, I wonder if the two people, on the right, are two Thelemites looking for the Abbey?

for all the qualms about privacy that a lot of people have about 3d google maps, i will say this in their favour: although its not as great as real traveling, and i would like to be able to astral project places when i have no money, as a third alternative to those possibilities, these 3d maps are very good. its almost like youre there 🙂
we just need audio recordings of each place and then we are set.
