Great mcmtanyel 2019-02-21 19:30

Hello MarieLouise,
This church has an interesting bell tower. I like the cosmatesque pavements. I wonder why European churches do not have pews.

Default To mcmtanyel: Pews or chairs

Hi Murat,
A lot of European churches have pews.
Practically all of them in GB. In France I would say most of them too !
And in Rome : I have just flicked through my interior photos of churches : I haven't been able to check many, because I was too busy photographing the incredible altar pieces and ceilings.
But I did fid some pews ans some chairs : I imagine these are easier to take away and put back for some events when they might need space.
In this particular church, Santa Maria in Cosmedin, I suppose they wanted to leave as much free space as possible for people to be able to admire the most beautiful Cosmatesque pavement in Rome.
Thanks for your interest and kind regards.
