The Frescoes


The facade of the Hôtel Hermitage was hidden from view for months and months earlier this year whilst the frescoes were being restored.

Here you see a tiny part of the finished result on one side of the building. Beautiful detail - no wonder it took so long.

Excellent artistry. This looks too delicate to be outdoors and exposed to the weather. i hope the paint is weatherproof.

Jilly these are spectacular. How wonderful that time and money is devoted to keeping these frescoes in good condition. They are worth preserving, they are truly stunning!
