The present building, built to replace an earlier Romanesque church, dating back to the secc. XIII and XIV.
The facade has around all'oculo relief with symbols of the Evangelists and the Agnus Dei. The interior has a single nave with no transept and transverse arches that hold up the eaves, is the result of a recovery made at the beginning of the century. XX. The church is full of paintings due to the artists eugubini '500 (i Nucci, the Basili) but also to foreign artists (Sinibaldi Ibi, Julian Presutti, Dono Doni). Very significant is the Baroque chapel that opens in the middle of the wall d.: Dell'Allegrini contains frescoes and a painting (the Birth of the Virgin) of Gherardi.
A sin. of the high altar is the Seat of the Magistrates, with faux marquetry by Benedetto Nucci. In the choir is the Episcopal Seat, carved in the middle of the century. XVI. The late ancient tomb beneath the high altar contains the relics of SS. James and Marian, the holders of the church. On the walls of the temple are traces of frescoes of the secc. XIV and XV. The wall paintings of the apse, the triumphal arch and the chapels of sin., Are the work of Augustus Stoppoloni (1916-18).

A powerful composition Silvio where the church with its imposing tower looms over the valley and wider view. A location to add to my list of 'have to visit' places. Have a fine Sunday. Rosemary

To my mind, the base image was excellent, with a great DOF and a beautiful texture on the church's wall.
THe sky was certainly white and you tried to fix it, but to my mind, the post treatment is over the top and the transition between the lower sky and the mountains is really weird.
Moreover, the purple tones in the sky don't fit with the yellow white balance of the foreground image...
Exchanging skies is a tricky thing to do !!
Have a nice day

Its an amazingly beautiful sky and an equally beautiful horizon, that makes the huge grey Cathedral so elegant.
The sharpness of the grey brown building contrast with the saturated blue of the sky. The billowy white clouds makes the photograph come alive with aggression.
As usual, a very well composed photograph from a well thought out POV.
Thanks for sharing, Silvio.

una foto grandiosa, tra le tue più belle.
una nitidezza ed un colore che fanno da splendido aiuto ad una composizione di grandissimo effetto e curata in ogni dettaglio.
Luce morbida e diffusa ed un cielo che da solo è un altro spettacolo a coronare la bella vista sulla cittadina.
Ciao e buona domenica

The sky is absolutely amazing and created a really dramatic mood of the scene. Like it a lot! Very well selected POV fits here well to present this stunning architecture as well as unique moment. Great work! TFS!
Have a nice Sunday!

un très beau cadrage de cette église en plongée et qui nous permet d'avoir une vue sur la ville; une très belle architecture et un ciel nuageux (effet de bleu supplémentaire?)
merci de ce partage

A really splendid composition that sets town and cathedral in context. The excellent light helps bring out the detail in the architecture to perfection. Very well done and thanks for sharing.

Fantastic shot of this impressive vista. Good composition and a moody sky make this a dramatic shot.

interesting POV and composition. The tower in the foreground dominates the whole picture but with very good DOF one can also admire the village beneath. Quite dramatic sky adds to the atmosphere.
Thanks for sharing

Celle-ci est certainement une des très belles qui emplissent ta galerie depuis quelques années. Le ciel donne une répartie extraordinaire au clocher de l'église. Le cadrage est magnifique et le tout d'une grande netteté.

Excellent view of the hilltop gothic like La Cattedral, perched above the roof tops, contrasted by the deep blue Heaven.
Hope you are having an excellent weekend,

Beautiful tower, beautiful view in the BG and beautiful dramatic sky, excellent POV and depth

il campanile offre un bellissimo spunto per godersi il panorama.
Mi dispiace commentare proprio oggi la fato su Gubbio che ha vinto contro il Pisa....
Ma le cose belle passano sopra a ogni cosa.

una composizione davvero impressionante, ne hai accentuato il dramma ed il dinamismo molto effettivamente. Mi piace tanto il punto di vista che hai scelto guidando l' attenzione sia verso l' alto che verso la cittadina ed il paesaggio distante. Il cielo fornisce gran contrasto per quanto riguarda colori e tessiture. La nitidezza sulla cattedrale ma anche sul paesaggio urbamo e' magnifica. L' illuminazione vicino alle montagne e' un po' strana ma nel primo piano e' molto buona ed atmosferica. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,

not a beautiful capture - but a dynamic, powerful cathedral almost overemphasized by the use of a very shirt focal length (15 mm, but free of distortion), and an incredible, threatening sky.
Regards from Rhineland

Oh, what a composition. The POV is perfectly chosen and the wide angle lens takes in a huge part of town. This was clearly not a sunny day, but the light is absolutely perfect. And those clouds are terrific. They really look like they are computer-animated in Hollywood.
dkmurphys (42431) 2013-10-27 12:56
Spectacular POV. I like the way you took this image with the dramatic sky as a background. Well done.
Schnappilic (9060) 2013-10-27 14:10
Spectacular framing taken with wide lenses. Good high POV for a perfect background. Well done!
mirosu (8046) 2013-10-27 19:06
Excellent photo, taken from superb viewpoint. I like the view up, it makes the church tower majestic. The deep dof is excellent and the sky above perfect. Superb arrangement in vertical format.

amazing view from tower with excellent view from city exit nice landscape.
eldancer1 (20728) 2013-10-28 7:49
The cloud formation is very interesting, it looks like a scene from a science fiction movie and I expect spaceships to be coming out of them any moment. Good pov and nice details. Well done, tfs.
Fis2 (76922) 2013-10-28 10:00
Interesting POV and very curious perspective.
Wonderful view and tower.
I like sharpness and colors.
mesutilgim (72900) 2013-10-29 12:53
Hello dear Silvio,
One of your "best" architectorial captures here at TE !
With perfect pov and layout. Even the cloud formations plays with your layout .
TFS and best regards
grigand (18947) 2013-10-29 12:59
Stupenda panoramica di Gubbio dalla collina più alta, ottima la prospettiva, bel cielo di gran effetto anche se un pò artificiale; ma quelle macchie bianche è neve ! ciao
ChrisJ (91200) 2013-10-30 2:03
Smart choice of a vertical frame to emphasise the tallness of the old stone tower, with good sharpness and a stunning cloudy backdrop. Excellent graphism and the minimalist colour works well here. The patches of snow heighten and enhance the graphism. Tfs!
macjake (45574) 2013-10-31 12:45
I absolutely love the power and dominance this church has in the scene.
the side angle works beautifully!
love the sharp angles and lines you created!
one of your best shots!
SimoAle (170) 2013-11-06 1:40
nella tua galleria c è l'imbarazzo della scelta, le tue foto sono una più bella dell'altra! Questo imponente edificio sotto un cielo così particolare forma una composizione originalissima!
I miei più cari saluti
