Churches of Cascia

[image ALT: A small room with a plastered low ogival-vaulted ceiling. The main object in which is a stone table with a lace cloth — an altar; the wall behind it is not plastered, and the fabric of the building can be seen: heavily mortared irregular stone masonry. A few small paintings hang on the wall, for example a book-sized reproduction of the icon of the Trinity by Rublev. It is the main space in the church of S. Procolo at Avendita di Cascia, Umbria (central Italy).]

Country church: the main altar of S. Procolo at Avendita.

My sole "visit" of the actual town of Cascia consisted of a pit stop for lunch with a friend, and the very vaguest meandering thru the streets near the restaurant: so for onsite information on its churches we have only the little chapter of Guardabassi, which does list the essential information on eleven of the more important churches — which is still just a small sample, mind you.

I spent a good deal more time exploring the rural areas of the comune, though, and saw at least a pair of the churches in the villages; I may even be able to spin out proper pages for them at some point — but for now, a photosampler. (If you're familiar with my site, by now you can tell that a more careful visit of Cascia is on my list for my next trip to Umbria!)
