  • From the neo-classical feel, this church is worth a visit as it is home to a relic very old and important for the city. Too bad it closes from noon to three or so, then if you want to visit watch for hours. Certainly worth a visit!

  • The most famous of this church is the table of Sant'Agata, which you can see in the chapel dedicated to the Saint. It is a wooden table by an unknown author that covers the marble tomb of the Saint, taken away from Catania. The peculiarity of the work is to be a watershed between Byzantine painting, traces of which are found in the face of the Virgin Mary and small pictures, which as in the panes of Storytellers tell about life, martyrdom and miracles of agate, in Lombard style (12th century?). Some boards tell in detail the features of the work. Other must-sees are the frescoes by Giulio Campi, recently restored, placed in the apse. Until a few decades ago the Church was called "mitred Provost" and the Parson, in solemn occasions, she could wear the MITRE of bishops. This is because the city of Cremona was for some years divided into two and the Church of Sant'Agata was elevated to the rank of Cathedral City nova. In fact, the medieval building that stands in front of the Church was the Town Hall of the party which had become autonomous. In fact it's called palazzo Cittanova.

  • Often I go into this church, the Interior very dark but you can see the Angel's table object of veneration by the levers, is protected by an 18th-century gate, the Church is opposite Palazzo Cittanova near the Centre of Cremona, I recommend visiting!
