At first this church looks a little boring compared to the fresco laden nearby churches. It also is very different in style. It is huge, a little humble reflecting it's origins but look deepen at the alter and on each side. High decor has been...More

As my heading says- it was a nice church but nothing special about as compared to St Anthony's. We had to kill time before our appointment to Scrovegni Chapel (which is next door) so this was the obvious choice. There were some nice frescoes that...More

Huge, spartan, austere - and powerful church (and I'm not religious). Of particular interest are the efforts to recreate the artwork destroyed during World War II bombing.

Huge room which defies the last gif of Renaissance church architecture. Vast wooden boat ceiling and interesting frescoes. Not to be overlooked

Bombed by the Americans and the British in March 11944, this church has managed to salvage lovely frescoes by Menabuoi and the marvelous Mantegna with the cycle of San Christoforo. The altar piece is also very distinguished and the whole church makes you humble.

If you saw the Must See Scrovegni Chapel then you are right there. The church is impressive in size and history. I thought there were some nice jewels in the rough here.

Next to the better known Scrovegni Chapel, the Chiesa degli Eremitani has the Mantegna frescoes. These were restored bit by bit, a long difficult task, after the frescoes were damaged during WW2 American bombing. The church itself is peaceful with a beautiful wooden ceiling.
