                               Parrocchia San Bernardino


This building is located in via San Paolo.


The church has mediaeval style, brick-red walls, aerial pinnacle gable roofs, and so forth. I think it is a classical gothic building. The church also has some places for children to play sports. I saw many seniors that day, they sat on the davenport and enjoyed the times under the trees. The ancient church offer a quiet space to the citizens. The windows are narrow and vaulted, it constructs a mysterious atmosphere. The pillars are simple, at the top of the pillars, it has some sculptures. The color of the church is also simple, between brick-red and white, it makes the building tide and sacred. To be regret, I did not enter into the church.
