Chiesa degli Eremitani, Padua
(4.5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice church in the center of Padova, often overlooked by tourists but still very nice. The Mantegna frescoes on the right chapel are amazing.
  • Nice church worth a quick look inside
  • An essential stop to appreciate the value of cultural heritage and monuments of the city.

  • The remains of the frescoes of Mantegna faces coming to Padua. Throw in a coin box and enjoy. In the altar too beautiful frescoes.
