Another view




Again a view looking out from the old Town Hall: this time looking towards the Cathedral and the Baptistry (the round construction). The Baptistry is a beautiful example of Bizantine Art. It was built at the end of the XIth Century and its internal walls and ceiling are richly decorated with paintings representing Saints' lives.

That period of time during the Bizatine era, I used to enjoy the most in their manuscripts. Nice photograph.
