General View

Visitors gather for a guided tour of the "crypt" of Siena Cathedral, built and frescoed in the 13th century. It was abandoned in the early 14th century and not rediscovered until 1999. The frescoes seen here, painted c.1270-80, depict the Crucifixion, Deposition from the Cross, and the Entombment.
