It is nice surprise for the eye to catch this sight. Arca di Cansignorio is an "altair" in the yard of Santa Maria Antica church. If you are near the Statue of Durante degli Alighieri you might want to see it yourself.

Beautiful burial site for Cangrande I. His tomb sits over the Santa Maria Antica Church entrance. Beautiful details in the gothic architecture.
