  • Lovely and lyrical Romanesque Church truly a gem ... seeing the Interior and exterior rich in historical/artistic value to visit

  • Admire monuments, although religious style like this, grow more and more a desire to know the history that came before us. Know who we are and where we come from, maybe it would help everyone to greater tolerance towards diversity. Every people who went through this beautiful Italy, has left deep braids that are still inside of us ... we try to search for them and we will find many answers. Bon voyage and good looking.

  • Beautiful Romanesque religious complex within walking distance from the Centre, the most important of Aosta, with several small treasures that have been handed down for centuries. On the façade are noticed Gothic remodelling with addendums of towers and vertical elements. Inside to see the chorus of ' 400, the crypt, the frescoes in the attic. The cloister is undoubtedly the most charming and timeless content but valuable Romanesque decoration. The capitals are all carved and different from each other. Inside the church you can book a tour to the Priory of Sant'Orso.

  • Not to be missed when visiting Aosta. Wonderful atmosphere and amazing history. Take some time for exploration of the frescos at the pillars in the yard. They tell you many biblical stories in a clear "picture language" that can be understood even without in depth knowledge of the Bible.
  • Do not miss the cloister (small entrance to the right, facing the church)
  • The Collegiate Church of St Peter-bear is a religious building which, together with the Cathedral of Aosta, bears witness to the history of religious art in Valle d'Aosta. A specific interest of Ottonian frescoes preserved between the roof and the roof of the nave, and the cloister with its medieval capitals. The early church was a single Hall surrounded by a semicircular apse; It was rebuilt and enlarged in the 9th century In 989 was added to the existing Church belfry (whose remains are still visible embedded in current façade of the Church). Very interesting to visit this church for both its history and the many works of art inside, in the cloister and in the surrounding square.

  • Founded in the 11th century Church of sant'orso left Romanesque cloister and Bell Tower. Beautifully carved capitals, is stunning inside. Photo Gallery is prohibited, so visit again. Important tour in the Cathedral is a tile mosaic on the floor. Viewing through the thick glass for protection. Also bench sat on the order of priests that is otherwise one of the highlights of Chiesa di sant'orso, woodcarving is great.
