Chiesa di San Fermo, Verona

(4.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Famous for its wooden ceiling, Chiesa di San Fermo holds the remains of two local saints. Completed in the 15th century, the building combines elements of both Romanesque and Gothic styles. The wooden ceiling extends over the nave, while two paintings of the crucifixion occupy prominent spaces above the main and side entrances. Take a look at the tomb of Nicolo Brenzoni, a wealthy Veronese citizen who died in 1422. Considered a minor masterpiece, the tomb features elements carved by sculptor Nanni di Bartolo, as well as painted images by Renaissance artist Pisanello.

  • This beautiful medieval factory was built, like other in Verona, from the Benedictines who achieved a lower church monastic needs and superior to religious services for the faithful. The public key, then restored in Gothic style by the Franciscans and now being restored, showing some fine works of art including a pictorial intervention of Pisanello, but underground deserves alone the cost of admission to the atmosphere, the harmony of the lines, the simplicity of votive frescoes. Not to be missed even if outside the usual tourist routes.

  • A church "split" into two parts, the one below, oldest, beautiful because it shows traces of an ancient city, and top with beautiful paintings

  • Overwhelmed by the enormity of the 14th-century hull ceiling and built over a polite, 2-tier structure (above and below ground in Church) Church and first time was amazing and fresh! It's inconspicuous in esoteric Christianity had build a church in the basement and it was well done in intact to the present day. Underground is a little toilet in the 5th century in Romanesque pillars and ceiling frescoes painted on the rustic and friendly feel. Cold I wish in a quiet space and the person might have been he was. On the other hand, on the ground floor is built very magnificent, was glued to the beauty of the sculptures of the mausoleum is immediately to the left and above all to the Church in Branson! And noticed that it has for a while that Pisanello created frescoed Annunciation. Confirmed although three Archangel Gabriel is depicted on the other side of Mary, Michael at the top on the right side, the left side Rafael is disappearing! by Maestro del redentore on the ceiling fresco painting of the main altar, Eagle, Bull and lion are probably drawn San Fermo, feel a solemn gazed peacefully. Here is where light does not illuminate, the good state of preservation. In addition to frescoes painted everywhere, moved not sure what it means. I feel the weight of history along the Adige river Church's Kossak ☆彡

  • Remarkable church with outstanding artworks.
  • Beautiful place, non usual images
  • Unusual wooden roof with images of 416 saints
  • San Zeno is not composed only by the Church that can be seen externally but also has an older Romanesque church under it. both structures have a unique charm. Struck me particularly the pulpit recently restored with its massive and fantastic.
