    Description:

    The church was begun by Mascherino (1598). Girolamo Fontana II’s main work is the remodelling and completion of the façade of S Pietro in Frascati (commissioned 1696). He designed a two-tiered front articulated by heavy columns in both storeys. The upper level is surmounted by a huge segmental pediment, a conscious allusion to Giacomo della Porta’s nearby Villa Aldobrandini (1598-1603). Girolamo skilfully refashioned the existing bell-tower on the right-hand side and matched it with a…

    Description:

    The early 12th-century church of St. Front, Périgueux is a close copy either of San Marco in Venice or its model the Holy Apostles (destroyed) in Constantinople. Such a connection can only mean that the patrons were embarking on a bid to have Saint Front, a shadowy figure who converted the region in antiquity, raised to a status equivalent to that of the Apostles themselves. This bid was probably inspired because the church was one of the pilgrimage sites on the route to the Cathedral of Sant…

    Description:

    The square central bell tower dates from the 12th century.

    The outer walls of the present cathedral of St Trophîme are normally assigned to the Carolingian period. The church was reconstructed with a nave and aisles in the Romanesque style during the first quarter of the 12th century, and a new Gothic choir was built in the mid-15th. The Romanesque sculpture can be divided into four distinct groups: the nave capitals, the façade and the north and east cloister galleries. The nave capitals, w…

    Description:

    It was formerly the seat of the Bishop of Saint-Pol-de-Léon, a bishopric established in the 6th century and abolished under the Concordat of 1801, when its territory was transferred to the Diocese of Quimper.

The present building however, although on the same site, was built in the 13th century (with later additions). The cat…

In its present form the cathedral of St. Peter started to take shape from 1037 and continued through the 13th century. Work began on a Baroque renovation of the cathedral interior; in 1702 a sh…
