inside the Basilica della Madonna di San Luca

First, I would like to share this plaque, which provides more information about this church (if you can read Italian). These informative plaques can be found all over Bologna.

And now, I would like to give you a glimpse of the inside of this magnificent church.

What a beautiful church!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Girasoli, great photos! That's a very beautiful church. I would love to see it one day. Thanks for posting them.

Stunning! And very cool - this is one of the churches that claims to have an icon of Mary painted by St. Luke (I blogged about those icons a while back).

I love that funky painting too! Wonderful photos!

Finding this gorgeous elegant church at the end of that long hike is a fabulous prize. I hope one day to make it there. I'm intrigued by the painting in the last photo.

Girasoli, those are really wonderful photos! What a beautiful church. And that painting is so interesting.

Anne:

Gosh I love the churches in Italy, how lovely this one is! And I love that you have the Italian time clock on your sidebar - may have to copy that idea!

I was also intrigued by the painting. I would love to know the story behind it.
