  • A beautiful church, the Church of sant'ansano and Isaac's Crypt, a place to discover, interesting
    View original
  • This small church is a gem: the structure is quite simple but rich in frescoes. Going down the stairs you enter the crypt, what a great experience. It's really a little Pearl. A must see!

  • The Church of Sant'Ansano is modest, the architecture is pretty cold and the only picture of value is a fragmentary fresco of Spain (Giovanni di Pietro), performed in the first two decades of the 16th century. A must see though is the crypt, rest of Isaac's original church. The crypt is composed of original reemployment columns of a Roman temple of the 1st century AD, which is also a column visible outside of the Church, unfortunately populated by pigeons related suicide. Precious frescoes are preserved in the crypt of the 11th century, with the life of Sant'Ansano and Evangelical stories. The fairest representation is that of the "miracle of mutton": a runaway mutton (driven by a demon, represented by a black dog) threatens the population but they placate when the Holy hermit the brakes. On one side you can see the gentle sheep back to the fold: a naive sweetness. The charm that emanates from this place comes from the Millennium since its foundation and by 2000 years that separate us from its origin
