@Jen: I like this altar a lot, not many originals like this one have survived the eras.

@Linerberry: The interior of this church is rather original; most other churches have lost their original altars in the war or were 'overhauled' in the 1960s.

@Eleftheria: Many thanks, Eleftheria! Almost the only location possible, there were houses everywhere.

No one seems to have noticed you, or perhaps, cared that you were taking photos. Nice shot.

@Twelvebit: That's no mass; a bunch of Dutch tourists was crowding the church. They didn't notice me. :-)
