Stain glass in the sky

Ripaberarda stain glass windows

North of Ascoli Piceno in the hills on the way to Rotella is the town of Ripaberarda. This is a cute town on a hill with a well preserved historical center though it seems most of the inhabitants work elsewhere as the town is usually empty during the day. Just outside of the center is the Chiesa di Santa Egidio that has a high façade with these stain glass windows in the façade. With the spring sun shining through in the morning it is a very lovely sight. There are also stain glass windows inside behind the central altar and in the crypt you can enter on either side of the sanctuary.
