Description
Detail of rose window in the upper church facade. Completed in 1280, it is Romanesque in style, showing similarities to Spoleto Cathedral and other churches in the region. The elegant rose window, flanked by the symbols of the Four Evangelists, still contains traces of golden mosaic. Sculptures of mythical creatures decorate the horizontal moldings of the facade.
