Abbazia Chiesa di San Nicolò

San Gemini, Umbria Italy

Roman Catholic

The abbey church is one of the best examples of Umbrian Romanesque architecture. The doorway was carved in the 1000s and assembled in the 1100s or 1200s. The marble originally came from Roman buildings. The doorway shows different styles, carved at different times during the 11th century. The lions at the base are even older.
