S. Caterina

[image ALT: A large Gothic rose window with an outer circle of 24 arcades; the center of the window, where the glass ought to be, is blocked up with brick masonry. It is a view of one of the roses on the façade of the church of S. Caterina in Foligno, Umbria (central Italy).]

According to the TCI Guide to Umbria (1978), the 14c church of S. Caterina is a warehouse. By 1997 though, when I took these two pictures, she looked completely abandoned. The attractive Gothic door — pretty much unphotographable except on the oblique, since the church sits on a very narrow street. Why I didn't take the photo anyway, who knows: here, however, is the pleasantly medieval street, looking NW from the area in front of the church toward the piazza S. Domenico:
