San Bernardino is a church in Verona, northern Italy. The church, in Gothic style, was built from 1451 to 1466.HistoryThe church's origin are connected to the presence of San Bernardino in the city from 1422, during which he founded a convent of nuns for the order of the Minor Friars and, later, another one for monks. He was canonized in 1450, six years after his death, and in 1451-1452 his successor Giovanni da Capestrano, with the bishop of Verona, Francesco Condulmerio, started the construction of a large complex for the order in Verona, with the support of the Venetian doge Francesco Foscari.This was consecrated in 1453, though the nave and its ceiling were completed only in 1466. Later a smaller aisle was added. The six bells in E are rung with Veronese bellringing art.OverviewThe church has a nave and a single aisle. The simple façade is in brickwork, with a Renaissance portal decorated by three saints figures.Notable is the collection of Veronese 16th-century paintings in the six chapels of the aisles. The sixth chapel, patronized by the Pellegrini family, was designed by Michele Sammicheli. The main altarpiece depicts a Madonna and Child with St. Anne and Angels (1579), painted by Bernardino India, while the lunette and flanking pictures depict an Eternal Father and Saints Joseph and Young John the Baptist by Pasquale Ottino.

    I've come to Verona with a friend of mine to see Nabucco at the arena di Verona and needed an accommodation near enough to the old town, this is the place to stay! It is located halfway between the station and the Centre! We didn't know what to expect from the rooms, we thought they were with the bare minimum: a bed, a nightstand drawer Bible and a crucifix designers ... and instead was a surprise in seeing a very modern interior with air conditioner and electronic key!! The only negative was finding out that the checkout was at 9! In my opinion is a little too soon ... The staff is very friendly and personable! If I go back to Verona defintly!

  • Divine hospitality in a place where there is peace and brings security, nothing is missing and is open to anyone. Very very nice place; Unfortunately these places are rare in the world. Visit worth it.

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.
