The Church of Gurasada

English
The archeological research done between 1977 and 1984 suggested the fact that the actual place of worship is the result of at least four distinct stages of construction, extending between the 10th and the 18th centuries. The character of the edifice, ranging within the Romanic architecture, is determined by the central room, made up of four apses. Two of them are slightly prolonged, and two are semicircular, all being set in a cross shape, around a square above which a steeple is erected. The plaster of the church preserves two strata of old painting, a mediaeval one and another one, from the modern epoch, done at the order of Maria Teresa, the empress of Austria.
