Photographer's Note

Another photo from my stay in Bellinzona.

Bellinzona has always had great historical and political standing due to its position on the intersection of several crucial roads between the north and south of the Alps.
Numerous religious, military and civil monuments including the castles are all evidence of Bellinzona's important past.

This photo is centered on the church of San Biagio - noteworthy for the quality of its artistic 14thC and 15thC decoration, frescos of St. Christopher and the Virgin Mary with Christ.

These frescos are 20th century restorations, but the Church di San Biagio in Ravecchia has some originals.
