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.

  • Wonderful texture and intriguing. The vaulted wide also favours the perfect acoustics of the place ...

  • The Church of San Fermo offers an atmosphere that invites the interior silence and the encounter with one's self. The columns, the pulpit, the altar are admirable. A journey in time, a jewel to enjoy

  • We are faced with two churches: the lower one is Romanesque, very very "naive" collection, with frescoes and with the distinction of an equal number of aisles, then with a row of Central columns the upper Church is beautifully decorated with frescoes and with a ceiling at Hull, all very nice.

  • 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.

  • The Church impresses, but failed to enter inside.
