San Zeno

Church of San Zeno, Pisa
The church of San Zeno was a former abbey built around 11th century as part of a Camaldolese monastery. It has been deconsecrated a while back and the building is now a museum, also used for exhibitions.
This is the last post from our self-imposed cyber-exile, but we have not yet finished with Pisa: in the future we will probably visit our cousins more often and on regular basis...

It has been a good sojourn to your sister city.

I was going to say it doesn't look much like a church. Nice stone building!

I like a lot those arches, the architecture is wonderful!

I'm glad that the noise has disappeared and yet I'm also looking forward to more of the enemy. :-)

This is fantastic, a gem of a former church.

Deconsecrated churches always look a little bit forlorn. Or maybe it's just my imagination.
Yes, more Pisa would be nice, but I hope your forgive Livorno.
