Chiesa di Sant'Anastasia, Verona

4.5
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.

    Church with beautiful floral paintings and beautiful frescoes. It's still weird to pay to enter a church...

    Beautiful church, even here the fact of payment is a little weird. We paid 2.5 euros each and even gave the audioguide and payment at that time was mandatory. Twenty minutes later you could enter without paying and naturally without headphones. There was also an absurd subscription to 4 churches for 6 euros. Absurd in that two of these churches were not visited largely because being restored and also at the entrance are not paid. However, this church is beautiful to visit quietly and with audio guide in order to understand and appreciate it all. Too bad the masterpiece of Pisanello's pretty spoiled.

    This church is Romanesque/gothic from the outside and inside has a right old Mix of gothic and baroque. Some amazing frescos and statuary from gothic period survive alongside the more imposing baroque...  more »

  • 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.
  • This church was incredible in side. The art work amazing. You need to pay 2.50 but worth it. I have never seen such a gorgeous inside of a church. The paintings and frescoes out of the world.
  • A must see on your places to visit in Verona. Not so pretty on the outside but a beautifully decorated church on the inside. A vast vaulted ceiling 7 lovely high altar. Look out for the font as you enter the church.
  • I've visited a lot of churches but I always remember this one. The outside doesn't look that great, but the interior is extraordinary. You have to pay to enter which is a shame, but it's definitely worth it so I'd wholeheartedly recommend going.
  • One of the oldest church in Verona with some amazing historical facts.

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.
