Wonderful old world architecture. The cross stands out nicely against the blue of the sky, JM.

I'd love to hear the sound of that bell. It's intriguing, that one half-opened window on the right side. So welcoming.

I'm not a big fan of pink, but it actually looks nice on the building.

Very nice. Simple.

The color remind me of Boca Raton, Florida.

I've always thought it interesting that the palatial people found it necessary to have their own special worship place, away from the hoi polloi...
