Italy - Puglia - Galatina

Today's photos come from the town of Galatina.

The first set are of the main cathedral of St. Peter and St.Paul.

The first is of the frontage and the second is an interior shot of the roof.

The third shows you not to believe everything is as it seems - the frontage of the cathedral seen from the side.

The following two photographs are from the cloister at Basilica Santa Caterina d'Alessandria, since I wasn't allowed to take photographs inside the basilica itself. The link gives a minute indication of how impressive the church is.

It really is awe inspiring and the frescos look as fresh as the day they were painted.

The architecture of these buildings and the delicate painting just takes my breath away!
