The altar...

This is the altar of the Roman Basilica of St. Nicholas, near to the Tiber River. The priest at the altar faces East and at the same time he faces the faithful (who are in the nave). Nevertheless, the standing cross with candles remains on the altar - not to "hinder" anyones view, but for the reflection of the cleric (and faithful!).
