Di passaggio a Lodi, ci ha colpito la semplicità lineare e aggraziata della facciata romanica di questa chiesa dedicata a San Lorenzo Martire che si ritiene essere la più antica di Lodi (risalente al XII secolo). Siamo entrati e siamo stati rapiti dall'intenso barocco dell'interno cui sopravvivono testimonianze artistiche (affreschi, oli, stucchi ecc) di epoche precedenti. Non siamo in grado di citare gli artisti cui sono attribuite le opere, ma renderle visibili con delle foto è il minimo che si potesse fare. Eccole, giudicate voi.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
