Today, we would have very much enjoyed spending time with Cristiano Pellegrini, our amazing guide in Roma. We spent hours in Siena churches today, churches dating to the 12th century. It is so difficult to place things in the proper perspective when you have but a smattering of historical understanding. The churches we visited today were begun during the crusades in the 12th century and pictured here is one of the oldest churches in Siena, St. Christophers or better known as Chiesa di San Cristoforo began in the 13th century and was restored after an earthquake in 1798. The simplicity of the dome is striking, The crucifix hanging in the foreground dates to the 13th century.
