  • Absolutely precious visits organized by the Association "the beautiful Saint Michael and the Collegio Borromeo. Every first Sunday of the month (from March to October 2017) will discuss specific issues: for example this past March 5 topics were the architecture of the Basilica of San Michele on one side and the Collegio Borromeo and its history. The invisible thread that unites these two masterpieces is the Church of San Giovanni in Borgo that once stood next to the Borromeo (later destroyed) and that had many features in common with San Michele, the basilica of Kings (Pavia was for a time the capital of the Lombards). The appointment for guided tours (free) is the first Sunday of the month at 15 in the churchyard (but any time is a good time to see such beauty). Although pavese doc, there is so much to discover about masterpieces that the city preserves and definitely worth returning.

  • Romanesque Basilica in the historic centre of Pavia, strolling in Strada Nuova towards the old bridge, turn left onto via Garibaldi. Crypt and bas-reliefs. Charming square.

  • Both the façade, the exterior and the Interior of the Church show a timeless grandeur and what a pitty.
