Sante Maria del Carmine – Branccai Chapel

On Thursday we went to see the Branccai Chapel which is in the chapel belong to a Carmalite order. To get inside we had to cross a wonderfully peaceful cloister. If you look carefully you can see that there are statues up on the second floor.

I really liked this one. She looks like she’s waiting for someone.

As to the frescos in the chapel itself, they were some of the most amazing things I have EVER seen. I’m not sure if I believe in God any more, but art like this certainly makes me believe in man. I don’t have either the skills or the right photography equipment to do it justice. So I suggest you look here.

I thought I would post these 2 to give you some ide about the texture.

Outside I found this nun, who I rather liked.

And this bizarre skull and cross bones.

And for Virginia a Carmalite letterbox.
