Since the beginning of the construction of the cathedral, in the year 1147, the building has been modified several times and survived many earthquakes. It is nowadays a mix of different architectural styles.

un buon taglio che attraverso la bella bifora mostra una parte dei tetti della città e l'azzurro del mare sullo sfondo,

Good Morning Daniel,
I find the use of the window, a most attractive natural border. There is a lovely contrast from the shade, to the light, and it allows the fretwork to be noticed. I would imagine that, apart from the aerials, this scene is unchanged for centuries.
Have a lovely day,

The attractive arched window makes a splendid frame for the view outside resulting in some interesting light and shadow contrasts. Apart from the TV aerials this scene has probably not changed much for very many years.

J'aime beaucoup cette vue de la cathédrale. J'aime la forme des fenêtres et le bleu du ciel parsemé ici et là d'antennes de télé.

Superb composition. The clarity and sharpness, and the sky seen from the arches/windows are wonderful. The details superb.
Have a nice day.

It never ceases to amaze me how you manage the exposure in these images - you have an amazing capacity to find such images too!

Beautiful scenery of the red tiled roofs and the sea is visible through the well composed archway. The dark and subdued light of the interior of the cathedral makes for a perfect frame to the bright, sharp and colourful imagery outside.
The beautiful craftsmanship amd masonary work on the Cathedral is well captured here. The strong light and shadow enhances this effect; as we are looking out into the bright blue sky and the deep colours of the sea.
Thanks for sharing.

Interesanta abordare. Ar fi fost mai bine daca peisajul din departare era mai estetic.
O seara buna!

The window provides a great frame to the scene behind. Old houses and the sea, they make an atractive scene and the architecture of the window itself is very nice.
have a good week

Hello Daniel - you have managed the light well in this nicely composed shot. Making the most of the light and shade on the interior walls you have very good detail in both and I love the contrast between 'inside' and 'outside' where the interior looks so cool compared to the warm, sunny view outside. A composition which works well and has lots of appeal. Warm regards rosemary

Hello Daniel. I admire your great compositions. Seeing is one thing, good images compose the other. You have this talent. The photo with the view through the windows of the cathedral is outstanding,
