Within an otherwise boring church, the Chapel of St. John has a group of beautiful frescoes dating back to the 13th century. Well worth a short visit.

A short work from the Duomo, this church is very nice, but you must visit St. John's Capel to see the fascinating paintings, especially the one about death with the horse in the middle separating the young people from the old people, and the picture...More

A really nice church with an even more beautiful Chapel inside. The main nave is unadorned due to bombing during WWII, however the Rococo choir is still nice to see. However the best part is the Chapel of St John with its amazing, Giottoesque, frescoes...More

The frescoes in this church will not astonish you the way the ones in the Branacci Chapel in Florence or the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua will, but they are worth stopping in to see. The church is right near the Duomo and the main piazza,...More

Close to the main Bolzano Duomo. Worth a visit and to see the Chapel of St. John. This is going through a major restoration but it is worth seeing this space which was frescoed during the 14th century. Free but for 0.5 euro you can...More

I walked into the Chiesa dei Domenicani (across from the Duomo and much more impressive!) and at first thought, why bother to look around; its so dull looking, but my friend insisted and we went back behind the alter and found two sets of frescoes...More

The Chiesa Dei Domenicani in Bozen (Dominikanerkirche) is one of the most important churches in South Tyrol. Its art historical perspective is gained by a small chapel which contains important frescoes of a follower of Giotto. A direct influence from the Arena chapel in Padova...More
