  • a church and a cloister that inspire peace and serenity where to find a moment of recollection and admire the beautiful architecture of the place

  • Unlike the other churches of Bologna, it does not great inside frescoes, although respectable proportions give it a special character with its majestic pillars and his altar in the form of mini Cathedral. However, its exterior is really very special and it is especially the tombs under arches that will lure you. They are beautiful with their green roof and their dozen pillar to support. The grid encircling the whole (Basilica and Tomb) is regularly topped of small lions holding a coat of arms. This set is really beautiful. In front, the large square presents beautiful and large bench where it is good to rest a bit. A must see!

  • Outside, the presence of majestic tombs (in columns) raised combed a pyramidal roof of green glazed tiles will surprise you. The so-called tombs of the commentators, who were lawyers writing "glosses", IE the annotations on the justiniens Roman law codes. Inside this Basilica Church Romanesque, little light, won't you hardly remember.

  • A place of worship
  • Beautiful.
  • The basilica is located in Piazza San Francesco. The Church has a simple façade but very beautiful, as well as inside.

  • Fine example of Italian Gothic style, with clean lines, special columns, lines of red fruit from time extension and although reconstruction. Very nice the altarpiece.
