A beautiful ancient structure!

It's leaning! It's leaning! :-)

Is that someone sitting in the doorway - a homeless person, perhaps?

Love the colorful tram coming down the street.

All in all, a fine photograph! Hope you had a nice holiday yesterday!

pretty!

@Lowell: Yes, I guess it's a beggar. Actually there's another person sitting on the stairs but, judging from the luggage, it might be a tourist.

That is an interesting perspective, JM. The church has a crude style, but is nonetheless quite appealing.

That is quite an imposing building. That huge arched entrance seems big enough to drive a horse and coach through but, with the stairs in front, I'm guessing that never happened.

I love buildings from this century. Did you take any photos inside?

Randy said...

That would be something that has to be seen in person. How wonderful.

An impressive church, love the tram in background!

It looks to me as if this has been reconstructed at one time or another. Earthquake damage?
