Marvellous crucifix
Aug 2015 • Solo
The sanctuary is the home of a marvellous 15th century statue in painted wood of Our Lord hanging on the cross. Masterpiece, miracle, or supreme art informed by God, it shows three aspects of the crucifixion. Viewed from in front, Christ is completely alive, viewed from one side, He is dying in agony, and viewed from the other He is dead.

(If at first you're unable to 'see' the different faces, ask someone to show you exactly where to stand.)

The sanctuary itself is a far later building (the original one having been destroyed in an earthquake, which didn't however harm the crucifix) in a beautiful, peaceful position a kilometre or so outside the town. The site, though, is very old. There are traces under the sanctuary of Roman buildings. Finds from excavations in the area are kept in the town museum.
