Duomo of Modena, considered toghether with Sant'Ambrogio in Milan one of the main examples of early romanesque style. It is an UNESCO world heritage site. The project is from architect Lanfrancus. The construction began as early as 1099 in a brand new style, a style that would later been baptized as romanesque style:

The duomo of Modena, Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy part 2:

The Duomo of Modena is considered an unique monument due mainly to its vast collection of romanesque carvings well, very well preserved. But in Modena you can find not just quantity of carvings but also quality. Here operated the famous master carver Wiligelmus of Modena. He was the first sculptor to return to sign its works of art after centuries of anonymous artists:





Here starts the serie of Wiligelmus, the Creation of Men, made in year 1099:



Adams and Eve are sent away from Earthly heaven:



Cain and Abel:



Murder of Cain and Noah's Arch:



Details from Adam and Eve panel:



Funerary genious:



Carvings on the sides of the portal:



Prophets:







Other romanesque carvings:





Porta of the Pescheria:

Duomo of Modena part 3:

During years 1200s, other great artists decorated the interiors of the cathedral. This is the case for example of the lifted main altars, built as a single sculputere by romanesque artistis known as Masters Campionese, that is Anselmus of Campione and







The main apses, not so ancient though:

the portico de la gloria is a real masterpiece of "classic romanesque" era!
Have you got an image of what the Santiago cathedral was like before the actual (and most beautiful) baroque facade? I saw it in a documentary on a tv show but I can't find it on the web.
And yes, here I am, I've completed the camino de santiago back in 2006, from Pamplona to Santiago!

Chapel of Saint-Gabriel, municipality of Tarascon.

Location: Google Maps



by EmDee (Wikimedia)



The chapel seems lost in the middle of nowhere but that has not always been the case. In ancients times, it was the site of Ernaginum, the capital of the Nearchi, members of the tribal confederation of the Salyes. It was the crossroads between the Via Aurelia, the Via Agrippa and the Via Domitia. However there was also a wetland. The utriculaires, a corporation of boatmen, transported the goods through it between the plain of the Durance and the plain of Arles.

Ernaginum became Saint-Gabriel, name mentioned for the first time in a charter of 1030.
The chapel was built in the 12th century, it is an example of provençal romanesque style.




by Christophe Trinquier (Panoramio)




Then, the marsh progressively dried out, the population ended up leaving the town. Nothing remains but the chapel and a tower.

It is very original the renaissance tympanum...it has been added later? And then they utilized the romanesque basrelief as a decoration? very spiritual and historically stratificated

p.s. the mediterrean vegetations is the perfect decoration for romanesque rural architecture! it reminds me a lot of ligurian riviera in Italy and also catalan romanesque in spain! in architecture and in the nature there are no borders!

Yes, the tympanum is surprising. It is provençal romanesque, inspired by the greco-roman antiquity with typical sculptures, acanthus, columns, triangular pediments... A more famous example is the former cathedral Saint-Trophime, in Arles, with the Tetramorph again.

...and it shows where the sculptured gothic portals tradition comes from...in Italy both romanesque and gothic has always been more linked with painting than sculptures like in our neighbour countries like france or spain...didn't know of this variety of romanesque!

Languedoc romanesque style also is inspired by the Roman monuments. The façade of the Abbey of Saint-Gilles was built in the 12th century.

Romanesque architecture is an architectural style of Medieval Europe characterized by semi-circular arches.

It developed in the 12th century into the Gothic style, characterised by pointed arches. Examples of Romanesque architecture can be found across the continent, making it the first pan-European architectural style since Imperial Roman Architecture. The Romanesque style in England is traditionally referred to as Norman architecture.


Ma favourites:

Piza Cathedral:




One of the greatest examples from Poland:

Tum Collegiate Church:






(In the background you can see outline of an old settlement before location of the city)

Great thread, I find the Romanesque style of architecture really fascinating and in many cases incredibly beautiful. I guess it depends on terminology (Romanesque or Byzantine) but the Mausoleum of Theodoric at Ravenna (built c. 550) must be classed as Romanesque as the 10th/11th century cathedrals are very much based on this style so it's safe to say this architecture certainly had it's origins well before the middle ages.

Well there are certainly some roots, but the greatness of romanesque style is that it has been the first pan european style, while byzantine is to be found in eastern europe and italy, not much like the romanesque style that was developed from spain to poland, from england to sicily...

For Milan, for example, I avoid to mention some paleochrystian churches that have an earliest byzantine influence, but that from certain point of view definitely have contributed to develop, after many centuries, the romanesque style, the most famous being the San Lorenzo basilica, considered the second bizantine church in the world in terms of architectural influence after the Hagia Sofia in Instanbul. Here you are some picture of this basilica built in year 362 a.C. above a roman era palazzo:





Roman era columns, not many cities may show a pretty modern skyline and well preserved roman columns in a plaza few km away



the beautiful interior, so roman!









Sant'Aquilino chapel, IV century:



In the apsis area, some very early romanesque feature like the romanesque lombard band are easy to see:







Ancient roman era foundations:
