  • I stopped at this church, like I always do when I go visit a new city, as I walked in, I felt it was a little bare, cold (not temperature), then coming in front of the altar, I realized that it is on the right than on the left, there are two truly amazing beautiful reliefs, then alongside the altar there is the crucifix a little in dark light, the right atmosphere for a prayer "private" but very nice. If you can't stop, enter and admire.

  • Very simple from the outside preserves a beautiful and ancient crucifixion on Panel. Christ, despite the injury cost bloody monsters, so it should already be dead, has wide eyes and see who's watching. Romanesque conception, in fact, have set ourselves before the mystery of victory over death, not the Chronicle of a death sentence.
