Madonna di San Luca (BO)

BolognaSanLuca6.jpg

As a traditional religious object of cult linked to the devotion of the image of the Blessed Virgin of St. Luca as well as comforting visual landmark for the Bolognese returning home, the sanctuary located on the Colle della Guardia is one of the symbols of the city itself. Measuring 3,796 meters in length, the portico that links the Sanctuary and the town is the longest in the world. Since 1433, this portico has been providing shelter for the annual procession which carries the Byzantine Madonna and Child to the cathedral in town during Ascension week. The construction of the portico began in 1674 with the Bonaccorsi arch by Gian Giacomo Monti at the old gate of Porta Saragozza. One can begin the walk up to the Sanctuary of the Madonna of San Luca at the Meloncello Arch situated along via Saragozza. The Sanctuary of Madonna di San Lucastanding today was built by Carlo Francesco Dotti between 1723 and 1757, as a replacement for the previous 15th century church. Among the artists whose works decorate the church are Guido Reni, Donato Creti, Giuseppe Mazza, and Guercino.

Little reminder:

- The fewer points you get, the better

- You get the number of points equal to the finishing position of your selected rider*

- You can choose every rider only once

- One result can be scrapped at the end, to avoid being lost entirely if someone crashes out or something

 

*in case your rider DNF's, DNS's, gets DQ'ed or you already chose him before, you get the number of points equal to the number of finishers in that stage

It's a few hours before the start, which means Victor Campenaerts is by now probably busy anally inserting some fluid to completely empty his bowels :)

"One can easily lose 200 grams like that, meaning I'd have to put out over a Watt less of power". 

 

You're welcome for this bit of info.

I liked it at the Vuelta, so I am in. I don´t have so much time currently, but I am trying to finish it.
