An ancient Romanesque church

Most of the surviving medieval architecture is to be seen in churches and castles.  An excellent example is the ancient Romanesque church named Santa Maria Maggiore, and located in Tuscania (Central Italy), 90 Km North from Rome. The church was built in 1206, and it was reconstructed many times over the centuries. The interior has columns and pillars with romanesque capitals also carved with plants and zoomorphic motifs.

I don't want to get off track, but I sometimes go running past old buildings located in the urban environment. Many of those stones have a story to tell.

Purple blooming trees

On Easter Monday I enjoyed a walk through the town that reminded me the importance of trees along pedestrian areas and urban environment. Those trees give the opportunity  to enjoy  the blooming season despite the lockdown measures 😷

On the Covid-19 front, I am sorry to see many people who don't take social distancing rules seriously. 

Respecting social distancing rules, wearing a mask and washing our hands help prevent us from getting infected.
