In the Roman art, the architecture, was very important, and all the paintings and sculptures were use to decorate religious buildings.

  4. 4. At the begining, the plant had only one arm (basilica plant), and very soon, they made a new arm called transept, that formed a Latin cross. The place where the two arms cross, is called cruise, and it was cover it for the dome. The head of the church, called apse, was semicircular, and sometimes, the lateral naves, were longer, and the ambulatory sorround it.
  5. 5. For give more strong to the buildings, they made barrel vaults, and they support big and thick walls, columns, arches… The stone vaults were very heavy, so the walls that have to hold them, were very broad, and for reinforce it, they made the buttress. In the churches, there were some holes, and the windows were long. The inside of the church were very dark. Also, the made bells tower on the outside, and cloisters in the monasteries and in some big churches. .

The capitals of the columns, inside or outside the cloisters, were very important. The religious carvings, were very important too. They had colours that looked very good. They put that on the altars of churches or monasteries.
