This is a most spectacularly well done job!! This is in the category of photography, but seems to lean more towards oil painting. I'm not sure which it is but it is still very good!
Your use of color seems just right. Not too much saturation, but just enough to draw your eye to certain parts of the piece throughout. The angle at which this is set, gives the viewer the sense of just entering the room and observing the chaos within the room! Very well done there!! :)
The only questionable thing I have observed, is that, the angle at which the domed vault work, webbing thing, in the center at the top of the piece - where the larger of the paintings is located - seems to be overly exaggerated, it feels as if it were tilting to much toward the viewer.
So that one thing was the only thing causing me problems. The rest is great, so keep up the good work.
I've never done a critique before, so I hope this has helped in some way!
And keep up the good work!!

wie kann man solch einen ort nur so verkommen lassen? die deckenmalereien sind doch bestimmt auch kostbar... sieht eher nach einem schrottplatz als nach einer alten kathedrale/kirche aus... wirklich schade.

The destroied furniture and the cracks are the clue to the location in my eyes. All this look like it's the result of one of nature's biggest desasters: an earthquake. Such one happens in the Area of L'Aquila in Italy in the year 2009. Is it there?

I like the way that the ceiling (and the crack in it) takes you all the way down the length of the room. You found the right height to capture both that and the plaster on the carpet without distractions, because the plaster is a bit like a visual road that keeps you from getting caught up in the tumbled furniture.
