Basilica Santa Maria del Mare

Roses. And Stone. In Born.

The other day in the Born district, we happened upon a wedding taking place inside the Basilica Santa Maria del Mare, a gorgeous–if smaller–cathedral in the heart of the district. My girls and I walked into the cathedral just as the wedding party was being directed out of it.  Two beauties:  a church, a bride.

Later, when we passed by again, we saw the steps . . . and gasped. Rose petals, everywhere.

I have to say: the bride looked radiant, but the steps looked like something out of a painting. The addition of color to stone. I don’t know; it does something to me.

What do you think?
