Not so far away from the Piazza Spagna, there is Piazza del Popolo. The first thing that draw your attention away, when you just arrive here, is the famous Twin Churches: separated by the Via del Corso, Santa Maria di Montesanto at the left while Santa Maria dei Miracoli at the right. In 17th Century, Bernini purposely designed the identical churches in order to let the piazza to have something special. When you check it precisely, you can find that the dome at the left is oval while the dome at the right is round. Yes, there are many differences if you are willing to check it thoroughly.

距离西班牙广场不远处就是这波波洛广场了。这是著名的双子教堂, 由奇迹圣母教堂和圣山圣母教堂组成。这双子教堂分据于科索路起点的两旁,左边这个是圣山圣母教堂,右边的是奇迹圣母教堂。17世纪的时候,贝尼尼为了让这广场有些特色,所以就建了这两座几乎一模一样的教堂。仔细一看, 左边的教堂圆顶是椭圆形的,右边则是圆形的。再仔细地慢慢看,还会发现很多不一样的地方。

At the middle of the piazza, there is an obelisk. This is the location where Via del Corso, Via del Babuino and Via di Ripetta meet.

教堂的中间有一根埃及方尖碑, 正好是三条路(科索路、巴布宜诺路和滨海路)的交会处。

We felt lethargic. Hence, we decided to go back to the hotel and to come back here again the next day.

我们真的非常地累。所以,我们打算今天就到此为止,明天再来过。

=============================================


The next day, we came back again. Besides the Twin Churches, there is another church here: Santa Maria del Popolo. "Angel and Demon", the famous novel by Dan Brown, ever mentioned this church.

第二天,我们又再次回来波波洛广场。这广场除了双子教堂,还有另外一座教堂:波波洛的圣母教堂。在Dan Brown的著名小说《Angel and Demon》这本书特别提到这座教堂。

The only feeling in the air: creepy.

这教堂给我的感觉是:诡异。

The creepy feeling was getting stronger......Oh my God! The coffins were just on the floor and we were walking on top of the coffins!

走着走着, 越来越感觉奇怪。我的天! 原来石棺被埋在地板下,我们就走在石棺的上面!

After we went out from the church, again the Twin Churches drew my attention away. In order to accommodate the Twin Churches into the photo, Mr Yap had to squat while I had to really stand right in front of the lens.

从波波洛教堂出来,我的目光又被这双子教堂给吸引住了。为了要把这双子教堂纳入镜头内,叶先生得蹲着,然后我正个人就在镜头的前面,才能拍到这张照片。

从双子教堂的方向看着广场可以看到这根方尖碑。这是由奥古斯都皇帝从埃及带回来的第一根方尖碑, 以庆祝罗马征服埃及。右边就是波波洛教堂了。

Photobucket




我在像:把这根东西从埃及搬过来,需要费多大的人力财力呀!
