The Basilica of Saints Nazarius and Celsus

Who knew saints would share a basilica? And who knew there was a patron saint for temperature… no, wait, that’s Celsius, not Celsus.

M was particularly taken with the architecture and ornamentation of this basilica… he kept taking pictures long after C and J had headed outside to the warmer air.

This used to be a cathedral, but apparently it wasn’t grand enough and was downgraded to a basilica in the early 1800s.

I don’t think anyone’s been up to dust the top of the organ in quite some time…
