  • I think that this attraction is not to lose. Externally is put right, and those who visit, I'm sure then we want to go.

  • This impressive Renaissance church, placed in the path of Jerusalem and kept open by the valuable voluntary work, all visited for its presbytery, where the beautiful altarpiece by Veronese representing the martyrdom of Saint George is flanked by two large and spectacular paintings.

  • Nice the glance that you have on the Chiesa di San Giorgio in Braida Stone Bridge. Go here to watch the "martyrdom of Saint George" by Veronese, truly a masterpiece of painting, without neglecting the "baptism of Christ" by Tintoretto. The present building was designed by architect Michele Sanmicheli, the architect of the façade of Santa Maria in Organo.
