  • I returned, in that area to visit the Church of San Lanfranco of Pavia district, easy to reach, either by, or from the ring road, you can find parking, right near the main entrance, (closed bottom) its façade rich cute, its interior has a Latin cross with a single nave, a very large complex, to see the small cloister right in front of the altar of the Virgin. Several marriages, even of friends, were held in this church, to emphasize the good management, not to mention his Oratorio, in the previous review, I made several photos of it and I hope they can serve to enhance it right, every time you notice something different and special, that maybe the first few times you're missing. Not to be missed, I recommend a visit.

  • Early church dedicated to the Holy Sepulchre in which are established in the 12th century the Vallombrosa. The most significant period coincides with the years of the episcopate of Lanfranco Baby who was buried in this church. Between 1200 and 1400 was frescoed and enlarged. In 1500 the Marquis Pallavicini became commendatory and financed the marble tomb of San Lanfranco; a splendid example of sculpture of Amadeo still visible behind the altar. During the 18th century there were many drastic demolition and deleting parts of the monastery. To see and appreciate the whole complex of San Lanfranco guided tours are recommended by the Association of friends of San Lanfranco. It's worth it; highly recommended.

  • Unusual beauty, simple but charming. Beautiful three-part façade by thin pilasters, which lead up to the frame Terminal to hanging arches intertwined ... to top off there is a blind Loggia, made with trefoils and Lancet Windows are typical of Romanesque pavese. Exposed brick is the King of this architecture. both externally and internally. Make this church is the presence of a large circle of faithful attending the mass, definitely attracted by the priest who manages to entertain the parishioners with simple languages and engaging songs. I was here for a wedding and a Christening. I must admit that the atmosphere was really cool!!
