We were they only two in this church when we visited. It is sparsely decorated and this makes the fresco's that are there very special. The church was badly bombed during World war II so this explains why it is so plain - a lot...More

This church is huge. People who say it's boring or nothing special should look a little more closely. Yes it's fairly simple now but once would have been sumptuous and still has things to inspire. It boasts a beautiful crucifix attributed to Giusta da Manabuoi...More

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

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.

I downloaded the city of Padua's mp3 series (at padovanet.it) to lead my talking tour. Although some of the info was out of date, (especially the route from the park to the Scrovegni Chapel), there was a very nice segment about the Church of the...More
