St. Simon of Trent
I woke up pretty late this morning as we hanged out through the bars of Trento the night before, but I thought I would like to do a little more extensive tour of Trento this time. This city had been so important for the history of the Catholic Church, that I thought I would include a few chapels in my tour. I started with St. Pietro church, as it was near to the apartment, and then I moved to the Duomo and Santa Maria la Maggiore, the venue of the famed Council of Trent. I really wanted to go inside this church, as I would have the feeling of being in the very place where the fathers of the Church gathered to discuss the delicate issues of the Council. Unfortunately the church is being restored and it was not possible to go inside. The building itself does not have an impressive architecture, but the history behind it really is.

I walked through a little more around the downtown area and one street that really called my attention was San Simonino. San Simonino was a child ritually murdered in the 1400's who was venerated in the Catholic Church until recently. I took a few pictures of the engraves of the scenes of his death that are in Palazzo Salvatori, and I hope to visit what formerly was his altar during this trip.
As I resumed my walk through Trento's streets, I found Chiesa di San Marco, which had a photo expo in its patios. I also visited several of Trento's Piazzas until I arrived to the river Adige, which borders the city. That offered a very beautiful panoramic scene of the montains surrounding Trento. I walked a bit by the river before going back to the city. I stopped at Piazza Dante on my way back, where a homeless woman was singing her version of "Maledetta Primavera" awww. That made me remember my childhood :) I really love that song. The woman acted kind of crazy and she was showing her breasts to any who would approach to her, lol. And that ended my more extensive walk through the streets of Trento.
