On our Summer holiday on Lago di Garda (we left one week before the horrendous thunderstorms with golf-ball size hail stones and tent crushing storm winds began) we visited a few old cities and were not disappointed. Particularly the church interiors were quite impressive. A great contrast to the sober Dutch Protestant churches.

Basilica di Sant'Andrea in Mantua. A lovely city, many fantastic buildings (some under renovation). Too far away from Garda for mass tourism, so nice and quiet.

Tripods not allowed, images with high ISO but no problem with modern sensors.

Great set Paul, must have been great walking around in there. I especially like the symmetry in the fourth shot.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

I'm glad the photos show people that give the church some size and perspective.
And then you come to realize the enormous amounts of (symmetric) details are all around.
The light dome looks excellent.
All in all (apparently) a pleasant visit delivering nice shots.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken

These old churches show a reverence that inspired so many. I love these old churches and these images really show the beauty and I imagine how awed people are when they came to worship.
