Chiesa di San Fermo, Verona
(4.7/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • The peculiarity of this church is that it consists as though of 2 's buildings: the lower level was built by the Benedictine monks at the beginning of the last millennium, and the top-almost a century and a half later-already in the Gothic style. Very peculiar roof-in the form of a ship's keel. Definitely worth a look the most beautiful Romanesque frescoes, presented here in sufficient numbers.

  • The Church of San Fermo-a unique architectural structure, which combines two quite different structure. The lower part of the Church of the Benedictine monks built in 1065 (Romanesque style), and the top was erected by significantly later in the year 1313 (Gothic). During my visit there was almost no tourists, so you can not only consider all the details of decoration, but also quietly reflect on eternal

  • An old church with Romanesque architecture, really great artistic appeal. Spectacular interiors, rich in frescoes and artworks. Is it possible to buy a single ticket that allows you to visit all the churches of the old town and the various museums, thus saving a lot of money. Great organization. The Church is well maintained both outside and inside.

  • 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.
