Walking in Rome with the nose up ..

Rome is the seat of the Pope and of Christianity. 

And is the site of the highest number of Churches in the world, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, early Christian, Medieval, as well as Abbeys, Basilicas and Sanctuaries!

Not everyone knows that in addition to ancient pagan inscriptions, we can see on the walls in the street,

many examples of bas-reliefs and paintings with a religious theme, in particular Madonnas!

… and these images

were tasked to deter the robbers from committing delinquent acts!

so … walk the streets with the nose up !

……..see you! 🙂
