A must see in Bologna. Part of the walking tour from the tourist office if you do it. Well worth a good look around. Lovely church.

Old and majestic, this church / basilica is renowned for having inside the tomb of Saint Dominic (the creator of the Dominicans order). Also his tomb is decorated with wonderful statues, out of which 4 were sculpted by Michelangelo.
