  • Charming church in the equally tranquil and charming Campo San Barnaba FILLED with hands on AMAZING replicas of Leonardo Da Vinci's machines that have been reproduced from his codices!

  • Nice spot
  • Great church! This is the church that was used in the filming of the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Where it was supposedly a library with catacombs underneath.
  • Famous church because its exterior was used to film Indiana Jones and the last crusade in which was the library. The Church inside is a normal church with exhibition of Leonardo da Vinci, concerts and other interesting things. 100 m is cuffs bridge, bridge that crosses a canal but with the particularity that fights between rival gangs were being held and has the markings of the foot where it should be placed.
