Caserta Vecchia is a super well peserved romanesque borgo (little town), I really recommend you to take a trip there, at least with google streetview! Here's a link!

Nearby there's also the Caserta Royal Palace, one of the most beautiful in Europe.

But let's stick to the topic! Yes, Casertavecchia's duomo is very romanesque, yet Casertavecchia is actually even older since is a longobard little town. Here you are some other pictures of the beautiful Casertavecchia's duomo:

This summer I was visiting Norman architecture of Palermo, Cefal¨ and Monreale, is a great syncretism, is one of the most refined and exquisite crafts I've seen, I found a surprise that is not in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site

(OT for francisco) I have the great luck of living just in Palermo

the cathedral is an elegant example of norman-arabic architecture (even if the interiors were ruined with neoclassical renovation in 800, it was very similar to Monreale Cathedral before!

not in UNESCO world heritage sites because of the silly administration maybe :O

Palermo and Monreale should have entered UNESCO's list in 2013, but there were some kind of issue (limit per country is just 2 sites per country per year and was preferred to assign the UNESCO title to the Etna volcano, in Sicily too) and it finally should enter the list this year, in 2014, so don't worry!

Do you know the news? In Spain a 12th c. magnificent cloister has just been "discovered"... Yes, that can happen. It was located in a private estate in Catalonia (Palamˇs), but it actually seems to be the cloister of the old romanesque cathedral of Salamanca (dismantled after being damaged by the Lisbon earthquake of 1755). The owner thought (or pretended) it was fake.

DailyFail provides more pictures



As the article points out, this one resembles one of the most glorious romanesque cloisters in the country, that of Silos benedictine monastery in Burgos province (northern Castile), 11th-12th c.

is there an image or picture of the inside of the Cathedral of Palermo before neoclassical reform?
If it was similar to Monreale had to be something amazing.
Monreale has been one of the most impressive artistic experiences I've had. The combination of the cathedral, the cloister and the scenic wonders of the Conca d'oro would place up to the impact of the Pantheon, Hagia Sophia and the Alhambra.
I still think it is a scandal that has not been declared UNESCO World Heritage Site at the beginning of this nomination

That is what I found over the original look of the cathedral of palermo

we can call that romanic, but remember that the pointed arch of sicilian elder architecture are just influenced by arabic architecture

here are some pictures, sadly we cannot appreciate them today inside the church







Also, you should imagine palermo's cathedral without dome, it was built later

the dome, "cupola", has always been at the centre of criticisms, due to its lack of "dialogue" with the rest of the building, such that in 1900 there had been a project of restyling it in neo-gothic shapes. (never done )

today we can say that the dome is a peculiar and identificative aspect of the churc

oh Angougou! how many comic festivals there! And how many lightly buttery croissants there!

Today I've had the chance to spend some time in a very touristic part of Milan metro area: Como, the gate of the Lombardy Great Lakes region. Not many visit the city though, that may presume a roman origin and a walled ancient city. It also one of the richest cities as for Lombard Romanesque heritage, dating back to the XI and XII century.
One of the most interesting churches there is San Fedele:



The interesting trilobate apsis and its wide nave:



The interiors:

Romanesque dome with baroque frescoes:































The very lombard apsidal part:
