Foto Poppi, from La Piazza S. Stefano

A cluster of redbrick chapels, cloisters and courtyards makes up the 12th-century Italian church dedicated to St. Stephen. As shown in the black-and-white photo, three churches front the city piazza: from right to left, the Church of San Giovanni Battista (St. John the Baptist), the Church of Santo Sepolcro and the Church of San Vitale and Sant’Agricola. Behind the central octagonal church lies a courtyard, which leads to the chapel of Santa Croce (the Holy Cross), which contained copies of the Mount of Calvary and the True Cross. It is this central complex, built in the 12th century, that replicates the design of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. See plan.
