Siena  –  Cathedral

=> Wiki,  English


At the front of the cathedral the "SATOR square" is engraved:
S A T O R
A R E P O
T E N E T
O P E R A
R O T A S

  

It is a 'magic square' and can be read forward, backward, horizontally and vertically!
The Latin words means something like "sower holds the wheels". Other interpretations are also mentioned in different sources.
