May 28: Zernez church 1
But the day wasn't over! After dinner I strode back outside and went to explore both the parish church and its sidekick, the smaller Kirche San Bastian.
The transmission towers from my hostel room.
Twilight on the central square.
The walk up to the church zone, San Bastian straight ahead.
A closer, clearer view.
Out over the rooftops.
The divergence of the church paths is a great space in its own right.
Wall texture, cloud texture.
A pleasantly simple door.
The nave and apse. San Bastian dates from late medieval times.
A rather cozy-looking pulpit.
The back of the nave and the simple vestibule.
The dimming daylight provided sparse illumination.
A lot of the Unterengadin church renovations seem to have taken place in 1950 or thereabouts.
