What a wonder....what finds...what a great tour.
Did you know that St. Cecilia was not the first partron of music? It was John the Baptist...when his father's mouth was opened at his birth he sang the Canticle and therefore he is the first Patron Saint of Music.
The church today looks as it did in the eighteenth century with the cloistered convent to the right.
The beautiful art work is hard to portray in just a small photo on this blog...
The tops of the four post have sculptures of Cecilia, Cecilia's husband Valerian whom she converted, her brother in law and Paschal
On the sides of this blog are pictures of the crypt, the first baptismal area, and the bath where they tried to kill St. Cecilia.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and have a great day.
