Chiesa di Sant'Anastasia, Verona

4.6
A monumental church in the center of Verona, Chiesa di Sant'Anastasia is notable for the sculptures both inside and out. The four columns over the high altar display the coat of arms of Castelbarco of Trento, a family who contributed to the building of the church. The funerary monument to Cortesia is one of the renowned sculptures. It portrays the mounted figure of Cortesia holding a commanding wand in front of the sarcophagus. The chapel houses a late Gothic fresco of St. George and the Princess, one of Pisanello's main works, as well as Wilhelm von Bibra's grave. Outside the church, a small, seated sculpture of a hunchback attracts attention because of its expressive face.

  • Beautiful church for admission fee. Typical veronese façade, one of the best in town without doubt.

  • Don't be fooled by the exterior appearance, Santa Anastasia inside will amaze you with its Majesty. The Church has a large apse, four chapels and altars that are arranged on a Latin cross. also contains many valuable works, including the acquasantire governed by fair in the Chapel, and moustached gobbi is a fresco by Pisanello. With the card you can visit other churches and the Arena

  • Stunning church. I didn’t expect the inside to be so beautiful since the outside is pretty simple.
  • This church here looks quite a bit different than the several other ones in this city. Finished in 1400 in gothic style, it is quite an amazing sight. Coming from the front you will almost miss the big belltower. The front entrance is almost made in a simple architecture, typical for the gothic period. From far it almost appears (by the color) made from wood, but of course it's not. There are many lovely churches and cathedrals in town, but this needs to be on the to-do list, and if only because of the different style it has.
  • Absolutely fantastic. In other reviews, it's stated that it's pretty plain to look at from the outside which is true. But get ready to be wowed once you take a step inside. It's truly magnificent!
  • Wonderful, stunning monument of medieval culture and architecture. You are going to find here a lot of beautiful frescoes of XIV-XV centuries including master piece of Pisanello. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.
  • From Adige River, we walked to this church. A Gothic Church, the largest church in Verona. Being a Sunday, I didn't want to push my way through to view its interior. Regardless, I had a glimpse from outside, also a detailed look at its architectural features and significant paintings. I guess travelling is synonymous with understanding the history behind this Church. Loved. Well, added value to my travelling knowledge.

Where to stay in Verona

The historical center of Verona is packed with famous luxury hotels, which offer all the modern conveniences but also tend to be very expensive and require booking months in advance. If you're a spontaneous traveler visiting on a budget and staying in the central area is not one of your musts, consider checking into a small B&B or family-operated farm just outside the city. Verona's picturesque countryside offers less expensive but comfortable lodgings with good food and friendly hosts, all within a short drive from the bustling city center.
