Game lights San Juan

In the Romanesque / Gothic cared much light. There was no other light than the sun (or fire) and they played with their symbols, the pinnacle of the central ogive apse, where just the ajimez has a geometric drawing (with eight-pointed cross, slightly marked, rather almost epatada) and holes corresponding. When dawn breaks and the sun rises, drawing with eight circles is projected on the floor and walls of the nave of the church, according to the season in which we are.
Curious truth?
