Saint Bernardino, Verona

#96 of 242 in Things to do in Verona
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.

  • Do not forget that this part of the monastery of Saint Bernardino! Therefore, taking care of pilgrims and local disadvantaged, with Monday to Saturday dining monks of the monastery of St. Bernardino offers complimentary dinners. Easting establishment opened in 10:30, and lunch is served in the 11:15. At this time the 150-200 people can not only eat but also wash their clothes, use toilets and take a shower once a week to get a change of underwear, SOAP and razor blade. Planning your visit, keep this in mind. As a literary hero said Mr Vorobjaninovu, who for a free Razor: "Pussycat, we are strangers to this celebration of life!"

  • Church well preserved and rich in art. Audio guide service available. The Church is easy to reach on foot.

  • I note with disappointment that my review, confirmed by the user Niels B, was removed from the site. The Ripon, then, we'll send to anticipating proloco di Verona. I also ask who and why he cancelled. Rooms more than adequate but prices from hotel to a nonexistent service. Also: 1) breakfast time (ridiculous) between 8 and 9; is required to clear the table and wash utensils and the like; 2) there would be even a closet to put a backpack while waiting to start again; the staff didn't even offered to put my briefcase under the reception desk (I had to go to the station and pay salty); 3) checkout at 9; 4) there is no reception 12:00 am; 5) unqualified and opinionated; 6) 50 euro are required in case of loss the card replacing the keys. If the card was in Platinum, maybe it would cost less. Rates from hotel; the service is non-existent, outrageous, Kafkaesque. By reporting to the proloco.

  • Poor hotel (room service is great) ruled by friars modernists do not occur. 50 euro if you lose a keycard, checkout at 9, breakfast (ridiculous) between 8 and 9 (you have to clear the table and wash it!), there's a closet to store one bag. All at prices from hotel.
