Chiesa Nuova Church - Assisi Italy by JD Andrews

Built in 1615 on the site of the presumed birthplace of St. Francis, the house of Pietro di Bernardone. It was then called Chiesa Nuova since it was the last church to be built in Assisi at the time.

Italians Have Great Knockers…and knobs! by JD Andrews

Door Knockers of course, what did you think it was ;)

Have also have some very creative doorbell ringers and door knobs.

I collected a few photos of the decorative door accessories on my recent trip to Italy with Insight Vacations.

There were a large number of Lions which is the symbol of power and of course the winged lion is known as the symbol of Venice.

The majority of these photos were from Assisi and a few were from Venice.

Do you take photos of interesting things on your travels? Let me know in the comments.
