  • I see with pleasure that treasure of Romanesque architecture. Beautiful to see externally, but it is highly recommended to reserve your visit inside. Interesting history of the Church and the place. Splendid frescoed baptistery!

  • The present basilica dates back to approximately 60 metres long and 1025 to Latin cross, is not the original building associated with the Baptistery. The original façade and Bell Tower were leaning against the Roman walls and the nave was decorated with stucco. Everything now remain only remnants and ruins. The Church has a showy plant asymmetric and assumes a willingness to play the body of Christ on the cross with his head tilted. During the 1940s and 1950s the Basilica was restored back to basics after working on Renaissance and Byzantine style. Admission fee.

  • The basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore located in Lomello was built in the 15th century. XI. It is a Lombard Romanesque architectural evidence. Inside large arches, lighter at the ends by pairs of Lancet Windows (see photo) are an example of constructive originality. The current basilica was built on the site of a former basilica, of which the baptistery of San Giovanni ad Fontes was part, in which tradition and/or legend has it that Queen Teodolinda celebrated his marriage with her husband Agilulf. Was the 590 ad and is a place where is drastically reduced the distance with a past in fact very far but that the atmosphere, that is felt within in the Dim light of the nave, approached us dermally tangible. Absolutely worth visiting. Mario

  • The Romanesque basilica, impressive for its size and very particular to the apparent irregularity of its construction, it retains a crypt under the presbytery to it. The baptistery that tile, the age of the crypt, very nice outwardly for its octagonal shape, hides in his simple Interior an even more ancient baptismal font. To see.
