  • The impressive baroque Basilica of San Paolo Maggiore hid on the via de Karbonezi en route to the historic centre of old Bologna from Porta Nova. Great mnogonefnyj temple with frescoes, paintings and sculptures, narrating about the mogotrudnom life of St. Paul.

  • Little-known 17th-century Basilica, is a gem of Baroque art. The Interior is entirely frescoed by Giovanni and Antonio Rolli, beautiful painted cycle in the dome. There are many treasures in the Church: the altar with statues depicting the beheading of St Paul, the Paradise of Ludovico Carracci, the adoration of the shepherds by Carson and San Gregorio showing God to the souls in purgatory. In short, you should also visit because it is located in the historical centre just off via d'Azeglio.

  • In the Basilica of St. Paul managed to get quite late-around 19.00. Fortunately, she was still closed, masses, and lateral and Central altars can be highlighted. There are many decent painting, but most attention attracts a marble group of the central altar-people humility head of St. Paul (mid-17th century). First met a similar plot in marble.
