This Basilica is quite lovely. It is quite ornate with stunning art adorning its walls and a great feeling a peace inside. The craftsmanship within this and in fact all of these old Italian churches is mind-blowing, so special.

This imposing church in the main square is currently undergoing renovation so the façade is not visible. You can still visit the interior although ceilings are part obscured by shrouds. As with many of the churches we visited in the Emilia-Romagna region, the interior is...More
