Stop by Chiesa degli Eremitani to view a 13th-century Augustinian church that was almost completely destroyed during World War II. Built in 1276, the structure was decorated with Andrea Mantegna frescoes, as well as work by Guariento and Forli. Due to its unfortunate location next to German headquarters, the church was bombed by Allied air strikes. Visit the restored church and observe the frescoes, which have been tediously pieced back together like a puzzle from the destruction. Admission is free. Our Padua itinerary planner makes visiting Chiesa degli Eremitani and other Padua attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • The Ovetari Chapel, with frescoes by Mantegna are the highlight of this wonderful visit. It's amazing and outstanding work of reconstruction and restoration done after the bombing of the second world war had almost completely destroyed the work of Mantegna. Unmissable

  • The second world war with its bombings, inter alia, destroyed part of the frescoes in the Church of Mantegna.Si is next to the Scrovegni Chapel, and is a must visit, enter the environment at one single nave and chapels in addition to paintings by Mantegna offer other great artist proofs. Not to be missed.
