  • The Basilica is not some particular architectural feature, except for the portico truly delicious. Nevertheless it is worth visiting for its harmonious simplicity.

  • It impresses its arcaded square, an open cloister that is used to sell second-hand books. We could not see inside, it was closed. It was founded by the order of the servants of Mary on the s. XIV and then expanded in century XVI and in 1954 Pope Pius XII declared it a minor Basilica. If you pass by dedicating a few minutes, if you don't have much time in Bologna left up to the end of visits

  • The Basilica di Santa Maria dei Servi is definitely not a memorable Church and Bologna there are definitely other places of worship more spectacular and memorable. It is a place that for an occasional visitor or not, may hold some surprises. The external architectural context is indeed very interesting, with a beautiful cloister and a porch that is not found in other local churches ... and also the interiors in a sober Gothic style are definitely not to be overlooked. Of course, it did not particularly memorable architectural elements or artwork features (apart from a beautiful work of Cimabue), but overall it's definitely a nice building. I'm not saying it is a must-visit in Bologna, but at the same time may merit a lift, especially at Christmas time with the adjacent Santa Lucia Christmas market.
