The ceiling was being renovated when we visited, so it was draped with a large net, but this did not obscure one's view. This is a beautiful cathedral, with magnificent mosaics, located in the Old Town of Ascoli Piceno.
I have visited this church and it's fabulous crypt a number of times over the last fifty years and noticed the slow but consistent restoration work going on. On this visit we were treated to an invitation to join in prayer with Templars in the...More
