  • Hagia Sophia is part of the complex of buildings that are great. A city full of Roman and Romanesque testimony. A church must review now, after the recent restorations

  • The Church of Santa Sofia is ancient and Romanesque style has the distinction of containing the dungeons in a crypt unfinished remains of Roman foundations and a sacrificial stone (probably for Pagan rites to the Persian god Mithras), was founded in the first century by St. Pasha, a disciple of St. Peter, Bishop and Patron Saint of Padua. The façade of the Church of Santa Sofia is visibly sloped and the second world war still had many consolidations and restorations.

  • Beautiful Romanesque church, perhaps little known, where you can admire the Byzantine-style structures that resemble very much, as well as the nearby San Marco in Venice, even the most important monastic churches of Istanbul. Admire the apse with the niches, one with the face of a Madonna, and the central pillars, typical Byzantine elements. Nice also the splendid façade exterior apse arches. Not to be missed!!
