Locri Cathedral

Locri, Italy

Locri Cathedral was built in 1933 by order of Mgr. Giorgio Delrio, bishop of Gerace (1906-1920). It represents the Lombard Romanesque style.

The interior, on a Latin cross groundplan, has three aisles: the two side aisles terminate in small chapels. The central part of the north aisle contains a marble sculpture depicting Bishop Francesco Saverio Mangeruva (1872-1905) and the sarcophagus of Bishop Michele Alberto Arduino (1962-1972).

Seen from the outside it is Simple .... in any case it is always the House of the Lord and it is the fold of the sheep yes Jesus alive and ALWAYS present

The Cathedral is under renovation. But if we try to imagine the interior on the basis of the already completed facade, it will be a masterpiece. Finally a Cathedral will be "returned" to Locri. Thanks to those who made it possible ....

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
