Inside the Baptistry



A view inside the Baptistry: this is the dome with original frescoes showing Christ with angels, prophets and Evangelists with their symbols.

The Baptistry of Concordia Sagittaria is the only Baptistry of the XIth century in Europe having still the original decoration and the frescoes still crearly displayed.

That is an amazing fact that something this old could still be in good shape for its age. Nice photo.

Ciao, grazie per la tua visita, non sapevo dell'esitenza di una città chiamata Concordia Sagittaria; sono felice di scoprirla e cominciare a conoscerla attraverso le tue foto. A presto!
