    Great detail remains in the ceiling. Such interesting places. I’m so excited about our upcoming trip!

  2. What happened to some of the faces in the mural?!

    • CherryPie says:

      The information doesn’t say why the faces are missing (maybe it is not known). The central figure is Christ and the figure on the right is a Blessing Saint.

    What a wonderful place to visit. We love these hidden treasures. Wonderful fresco’s. Indeed strange about the faces. Maybe it had something to do with the ‘reformation’?

    • CherryPie says:

      I found the removing of the faces a little disturbing. It could be the reformation. I didn’t inspect the mural closely when I visited but from the picture it looks like the plaster has been cut out, so maybe someone removed the faces so that they could have them?
