  • The Church is located outside the usual tourist routes, so it is little known. The first data about its existence are expanded in the year 1000, Romanesque style during the 13th century and again changed later. The Interior has a Latin cross nave and gothic vaults; a large crucifix above the altar (probably 14th century); in the aisles (divided from the main one by pillars and arches), there are many chapels. From an artistic point of view are some interesting frescoes placed in some pillars; for the rest there are works of particular importance.

  • Small, but has its charm, the Christ of the entrance, precious, if you spend about, be sure to enter.

  • ... even for the typical "Venetian blinds" 15th century façade. This, like many other churches in Bologna, dates back to the 11st century, while later are the Bell Tower and the Interior, in Gothic style. Here, successive enlargements over the decades have led to the opening of side chapels richly decorated with beautiful altarpieces by masters emiliani. The adjoining convent, with a lovely Renaissance cloister, used as a prison for several centuries, is now home to the Department of history, Culture and Civilization of the University of Bologna. Thanks to the kindness of a custodian, we were able to visit the former refectory (today aula Prodi) with a beautiful fresco of the Cesi.
