Church Notre-Dame la Grande, Poitiers by ArthurKarapetov

Notre-Dame la Grande is a Roman Catholic church in Poitiers, France. Having a double status, collegial and parochial, it forms part of the Catholic diocese of Poitiers. The west front adorned with statuary is recognised as a masterpiece of Romanesque religious art. The walls inside the church are painted. The church is mentioned in the 10th century, under the name of “Sancta Maria Maior”, referring to the Romanesque church of the same name.

Girona Cathedral Cloisters (Catalonia) by marcgc

I captured this photo in the cloister of Girona’s Cathedral during the “Temps de Flors” Festival (Flower Time). During the festival, many well-known places around the city are decorated with tons of flowers, offering a great visual spectacle for locals and tourists alike. Perhaps capturing it at night was not the best way to convey the beauty of the place, but even at that moment, when I saw the mix of flowers with the Romanesque architecture, I had to set my tripod and take this photograph.

Capilla de la Virgen de la Esperanza- Catedral de León by neobit

Hace pocos años que está presidida por esta imagen de la Virgen de la Esperanza. Es de piedra, esculpida a finales del siglo XIII. Su policromía es posterior. Representa, en realidad, a la Virgen apocalíptica, con el Niño Dios en su vientre, perseguido por el dragón. Pasó en muchas ocasiones a cerrar el árbol de Jesé. Originó, así mismo, el tipo de imágenes llamadas “abrideras”, a modo de tríptico abierto que mostraba el fruto de sus entrañas. Finalmente, era bastante común representarla en el momento de la Anunciación, embarazada también, como creemos que es el caso presente, a juzgar por la filacteria que porta. Es una imagen lograda con gran realismo, muy querida por todos los leoneses.
En las vidrieras hay escenas de la vida de Jesús y de María. Todas ellas sufrieron profunda restauración el siglo pasado. El sepulcro del muro izquierdo pertenece al obispo Diego Ramírez (1344-1354). Expresa la temática funeraria común.
Frente a esta capilla hay un fresco de Nicolás Francés, roto en el siglo XVIII para dar acceso al altar. En el hueco se colocó un lienzo del Ecce Horno, pintado por Neira en 1834. Suponemos que dicho lienzo intentó sustituir al original, en torno al cual se desarrolla toda la escena, que ocurre en el palacio de Pilato, mostrándose en todas las figuras un gran aire cortesano, rayando la caricatura.
