Before the restoration...

The damage was extensive! Here you can see some of the damage that the building has sustained over the years, caused by earth tremors, being blasted by artillery shells, the ravages of the climate and just normal wear and tear. There had also been attempts at restoration and repair previously, but really this just added to the problems to be addressed.

These three photos show the interior of the dome with various saints. Below you can see the pendatives with the four evangelists.
