  • The construction of the monastery of the Holy Cross was begun in the year 1467 Jesuit order, which was founded a century earlier in Siena, and was disbanded two hundred years later in the year 1668 Pope Clement IX. The temple rises in the heart of the ancient city of Brescia on two old chapels: San Pietro de Ripa and San Bartolomeo, in close proximity to the Capitol of Roman era and the main church of Santa Giulia. When by the end of the 15th century monastyrckaja Church was built, its internal walls and ceilings were decorated with frescoes, of which today can be seen only a few tracks, mainly at the bottom of the Arc de Triomphe. The entrance to the Church is in the same period: finely carved with bas-reliefs, he completed the façade, which was originally enriched with frescoes, now lost, with tiny arches of glazed terracotta, which formed the border around the top of the building. The solemn consecration of the Church took place in the year 1501.  In the second half of the 16th century Jesuit Friar Benedetto da Marone, the uncle of the painter Pietro de Marone, completely covered the wall paintings that make up a large part of the frescoes, which still can be seen today. In the same period was built a small monastery. Sometime in the early 17th century by Pietro Maria Ban'jadore built three chapels on the East wall and decorated Central. In the year 1668 Jesuit order was dissolved, and the following year the monastery passed into the hands of one of the Franciscan orders, which otremontrovali wooden altars in chapels and completed the wall paintings in the side chapels and three bearings in the nave. Between 1884 and 1886 respectively of Brescia architect Tagliaferri decided that ancient frescoes could no longer be maintained, and they have been completely painted over with pointless decoration in neo-Gothic style. In the 1931 year Vittorio Trajnini proceeded to restore the frescoes, which still has not been completed. But gradually over the 70 years, saw the light of the entire range of former Church decorations. After the Suppression of the religious orders of Napoleon (1810), the monastery was converted into a seminary, and it was his function until almost the year 1957, when it was invaded by Fathers Ksaver'jancami and place as the center of the mission. The Church was built as a single open nave. The caponiers interior walls scenes of martyrdom, alternating with the Franciscan scenes. At the bottom of the Western Wall there is a frieze of dancing putti.

  • The Church is situated on the street, perpendicular to the street Museum. The road goes uphill, but the inconvenience of recovery will fully offset by the fact that you will see in this church. Beautiful multicolor, in minute detail, painting walls, and, especially, the ceilings. You can also explore the inner courtyard. Surprisingly few visitors.

  • We went to this church, seeing the pointer on Museum Street. In order to get into it, it is necessary to overcome the rise. The whole complex was opened before us buildings with a courtyard. Inside the Church is nice frescoes. Visitor no. Quietly and calmly.
