The Romanesque Glory of the Duomo, Verona

Here's a few detail images to illustrate the wonderful Romanesque sculpture which is apparent on the Duomo in Verona.

Known as Santa Maria Matricolare, the cathedral was largely built in the C12th and has on most of its walls the characteristic brick banding of the Romanesque in northern Italy.

On the south portal is a wonderful series of sculptures which are showcased here. Verona is a gem for the Romanesque - just a mile away there is also the church of San Zeno which has some fantastic sculptures.
