Italy has so many beautiful churches that even the great can seem ordinary when compared to some. It was a very pleasant way to send a little time without it being a memorable church for architecture.

It is different than other churches, this is less decorated. But it is still beautiful and gives a middle ages feel.

This is a church complex which started in roman times and grew through the centuries. Ignore the menacing mink in the first church- a despicable technique to intimidate tourists to give some money. You don’t have to and the shop has things you may want...More

These are the oldest churches in Bologna, and they hide a remarkable assortment of medieval art. Not to be missed.

The church was recommended by my B&B. It is actually a remaining 4 out of an original 7. It is very interesting and beautiful and it is nice to wander all the different parts including some outside areas.

.....if you don't visit any other churches - do visit this one. It is quite unique. Very tranquil and unusual. The square itself is also really lovely. There are many 'rooms' to this basilica both indoors and out with peaceful courtyards.

Located near one of Bologna’s many beautiful piazza, this is place of real calm and tranquility. Originally a complex of seven churches, now down to four, this is a beautiful place to wander and admire the architecture and art. Entry is free, donations are welcome.
