  Contra Battista, with peace flags
by iandsmith

Favorite thing: Looking down the Contra Cesare Battisti or Contra Muscheria you can't help but notice the main church. I couldn't help but notice also the peace flags that, to me, formed a double contrast inasmuch as what happened to the church in relatively recent times.
Though severly damaged in bombing raids during World War II it has been restored and looks positively modern. Only the choir and facade escaped any damage.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
