Two More Reliefs

Earlier this year, I wrote about Campo Do Pozzi and showed a photo of the relief on the side of the vera da pozzo (well head) that shows two wells.

There are a couple of other reliefs on that same well. There's something poignant about these weather-beaten saints (and I learned their identities from one of my books; I didn't recognize them on sight).

Both of these images are related to churches in parishes close to Campo Do Pozzi. The church of San Martino is still standing, but Santa Ternita was demolished in the 19th century. I've started looking for info about Santa Ternita and hope to do a post about that church soon. :)

Thanks so much for this wonderful blog post. Have a great weekend.

your attention to detail is amazing. I am looking forward to reading about Santa Ternita.


There's something poignant about those weather beaten reliefs...very beautiful photos.

Hope things are well with you (and those cute nephews of yours!)
