Santi Quattro Coronati

< previous > < index > < next >
Above the aisles are galleries or matronea, each having two arcades of three arches each separated by Ionic columns and with a pier in between the two. These matronea would have been for the sisters and orphan girls, but the nuns now worship in their choir in front of the high altar. The nave walls are undecorated, but irregularities in the whitewash indicate they were once decorated.
