The area behind the altar is in the background of the photo is another non-traditional aspect of the design of this Catholic church. The crucifix is not on the altar. It was in a large glass case on the floor to the left of the altar. I cold not get a photo of it because there was too much reflection of light from every angle.
Behind the altar is a model of the old church bell tower, which I showed in a photo a few days ago.
Tomorrow I will show my favorite photo from inside the church.
We are showing photos of Bellagio, Italy, and Lake Como this week on Viva la Voyage travel photo site. Come see the scene that inspired a Vegas casino.
