XI on the model of the church of the SSs. Apostles of Constantinople (now destroyed). To Greek cross, with five domes, you/he/she is preceded from an atrium that it surrounds the whole western part; in the sec. XIII the domes were enriched of shining decorations. The façade, from the crowning Gothic rich in pinnacles and cuspidi (sec.
