Travel Diary 36: Chiesa di Sant'Andrea, Orvieto

by Agnes Felber November. 04, 2013 2831 views

This 12th-century Byzantine church, with its curious decagonal bell tower, presides over the Piazza della Repubblica, once Orvieto's Roman Forum and now lined with cafes. It lies at the heart of what remains of the medieval city.

Cosmatesque pulpit.

Frescoes date back to the early 14th century.

The glass rose window is a contemporary addition and was made by Ciaurro Hilary.

Végignéztem az összes "útinaplós" képet, gyönyörűek, a helyszínek is.
Nagyon lényegre törő, látványos.
Őszintén irígykedem egy kicsit :)
