The "Calvario" is a gothic temple located near the town center. It was built in 1856 of calcareous stone (we have a lot of that around here). It has three octagonal levels, each decorated with arches and pinnacles. It's 20 meters tall and has a nifty spire on top that, according to whoever put the entry in Wikipedia, renders it truly uniqe as compared to similar temples in neighboring towns!
These little provincial towns can be so competitive with each other! Just you wait till basketball season starts!
My son had a homework assignment that involved us going out to find 7 monuments dated with Roman numerals, which he then had to translate into regular old numbers. The amazing thing is that we were able to finish the assignment in a 30 minute time span walking around an area of 2 blocks! I'll be showing you some of these monuments over the next few days.
