The Purple Marble of the Church

Here is a tiny (actually it pretty small compared to most) church a few minutes away from the Colosseum. They don’t normally let the public in, but I sneaked in behind a wedding party that was there checking it out for an upcoming wedding. The priest that let us in assumed I was a photographer with the wedding. This is only one of many times I have been outright in-your-face deceptive with priests.

Here is another well-adorned church in Rome. If you look at the details of the painting on the left in the large version, they are quite detailed.

Also if you look close, you can see the nun in the black habit in the lower left.

Le Crypto

This is a crypt that was buried deep under an old church in Rome. I can assure everyone that this is one spot I was NOT supposed to be, and certainly NOT with a camera, and definitely NOT supposed to be listening on my iPod to 80′s pop tunes.

I have also put this in my Churches of Italy set. The picture below from the Duomo in Milan also links to that set if you have an interest.
