Categories: Ruins, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
The ruins of 11th-century Rotonda di San Lorenzo are cared for by Dominican friars. Built in the Lombard tradition with bricks, the church also borrows columns and marble detail from previous structures that once inhabited the site, one thought to be a temple devoted to Venus. Inside, spot two frescoes, one from the Byzantine era, and another from the 15th century.

  • Is a very small, but if you are already downtown Mantua let us jump, is a very quick visit, but represents the culture of the city and is well worth a visit

  • Visit from 15/20 minutes. There is so much to see but it is very characteristic Romanesque architecture, the round shape of the building, as the name suggests, and I saw a similar architecture though smaller in s. Tomé, in the province of Bergamo. Given the short time it takes for the visit I highly recommend it.

  • The oldest church in Mantua, minimal but beautiful inside too. The open space in front of it is the haunt of parents and children walking in the Center.

  • A formidable light in the simplicity of the tour of the galleries. Deserve even one step.

  • A medieval jewel set in the historic centre of Mantova. Pure Romanesque style, a rare and unusual building. A building so similar (Rotunda of San Tome ') is located in Almenno San Bartolomeo in Bergamo. Undoubtedly remembers the Anastasis. Fascinating.
