Amazing! They just don't make things like that anymore! When they try, it doesn't look as good...

And the Normans took their architecture and religion with them wherever the went! A lovely composition of what appears to be a lovely place. Not for me, but...

What was that shiny inlay on the posts? Bronze? It is wonderful when they can make it glitzy without cheapening the place.
