5/50.- Umbria, Orvieto, Cathedral


The facade sports a circular rose window, around which statues can be seen of the Twelve Apostles and many other Biblical characters as well as of various Saints and Popes. The Palaces opposite the Cathedral (which today host the tourist office, souvenir shops, an « enotheque » or wine tasting shop, and the archaeological museum) are lined with stone benches from where the art-loving tourists can watch the many sculptures and other details with binoculars if they like ; while other tourists will simply sit down to take in the view, have a rest, wait for the bus, or eat an ice-cream.
