Altomonte II

Italian churches, even modest ones, retain a sense of taste and style, that I find missing in other Catholic countries.

quite fascinating. i've never been in a structure like this.
John Prior: Thank you Sherri
Great altar photograph John... I like how the paintings were meant to have the worshipper look up to the Heavens.
John Prior: Thanks Jacquelyn, the light behind the cross on the altar works well also.

I like this John, we had an Italian holiday some years ago and I was really impressed at the décor etc.of some of the churches, even the small ones, but with style as you say.
