Churches of Otricoli


[image ALT: A square stuccoed single-story building with a 30° gabled roof just large enough for its entrance door and the vertical oeil-de‑boeuf windows flanking it one on each side. It is raised off the street level by three steps and an irregular course of stone, which on closer inspection turn out to be of ancient Roman origin. A wooden cross surmounts the door, and a vine from a neighboring tree has sent one branch to grow across the front of the building. It is an unidentified old chapel in Otricoli, Umbria (central Italy).]

Like pretty much every other building in town, this little chapel is partly built of Roman stone: plain travertine steps, carved blocks under the windows (detail). You will find it a hundred meters or so past the gates, on the right side of the road on your way to Ocriculum.

I have no other information on the church, not even a name: se sei della zona e/o hai delle informazioni più ampie, sarò lietissimo di sentirti.
