A spacious yard with the Church of All Saints and a monastery is separated from the secular life by thick stone walls. The Church was built by arch.Paolo Romano in 1597-1616. The walls are supported by powerfull counterforts. The two-layer tower is decorated with pilasters and carved capitals, which support the white stone entablature and cornice. The tower is topped with a wonderful filigree stone attic. The ensemble is a sample of Renaissance, only the stone crown of the tower and the entrance gates give it manneristic shade.
This place is very special to me, as I was born and spent my first years in this yard (after the WWII houses in the courtyard were used as living-houses).
