Castle hill dominating the valley of the Nera (m.272), originally a manor house dependent on the abbey of St. Pietro in Valle. You can still find some traces of the fortifications built to 1453, after the grant received by the municipality of Spoleto, with walls to enclose the entire village, now thinned as a result of earthquakes and neglect.
The small town has never had self-government but depended on the castle Caselli, which he followed all the vicissitudes of history, from the point of view of religion belonged to the parish of Civitella.
On a small square on top on top of the country promises to the church of S. Valentino, linked to the cult of the holy bishop of Terni.
The Romanesque building, dating from the beginning of the thirteenth century, with smooth masonry curtain in front with two blocks and raining with a bell tower and houses the fresco decoration, executed between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries, with inscriptions of the developers of votive images that cover almost all the walls. Eggi of the Master and his circle are assigned a Madonna and S. Ab Antonio., two enthroned Madonnas, Madonna della Misericordia, S. Bernard, S, Pontian, Madonna del Latte, S. Lucia. The portal that opens into the right side wall is an addition to the Renaissance.

questa chiesa doveva essere eccezionale con tutti gli affreschi, si vedono ancora molte pitture e sembrano proprio belle.
Hai scovato per noi una vera chicca, comprese quelle sedie con inginocchiatoio.
La bimba sembra intimorita dalla tua fotocamera, ma la sua presenza é preziosa quanto un affresco.

another beautifully presented picture with great management of the exposure. The details and the interesting shapes and contours are excellently displayed in the lovely subdued light. The young girl not only gives an idea of the scale but stands out like a beautiful blue jewel in the picture.
Thanks for sharing and have a great evening.

You have captured some lovely natural indoor lighting and soft colors which give it such a great feel, the exposure is just right nicely highlighted with great depth and three dimensional sense while the eye is drawn to the intricate designs, wall hangings and the religious figs. A great photographic work with good sense of scale too. Well done, Congrats.

Bel intérieur de l'église des amoureux
En France la plupart des églises sont sombres et tristes sans aucun décor
J'apprécie les motifs sur ces murs
