Arche Scaligere, Verona

4.0
Get in touch with Verona's medieval past at Arche Scaligere, which preserve the memory of the Della Scalla family, rulers of the city in the 13th and 14th centuries. The five ornate Gothic monuments occupy the front courtyard of a small church constructed during the 12th century. Shaped like little temples, the tombs remain one of Verona's outstanding examples of Gothic art. Pay special attention to the tomb of Cangrande I, the most celebrated member of the family. In honor of his name, which means "big dog" in Italian, Cangrade's tabernacle-shaped tomb features images of harnessed dogs.

  • An important example of Gothic art, located in the historical centre of Verona. Are the monumental tombs of the Scaligeri, Lords of the city, roughly from the end of 1200 in late 1300. Located next to the Church of Santa Maria Antica, near Piazza dei Signori. Are very particular, with statues, capitals, columns and more, definitely worth a visit.

  • It is surrounded the scalar Family Crest-shaped iron Rails. Dead bodies lying on the sarcophagus, described realistically. Delicate in weight.

  • Graves of distinguished academics in Bologna, here of important citizens, have elegant architecture and that intrigues who doesn't know the story (as we passed there was an abusive guide that offered to give information to a minimum bid. "you will see that you will be satisfied ..."). I believe that with very little effort you can make a small detour compared to most known to enjoy the view
