Saint Bernardino, Verona

(4.5/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a 15th-century church that is part of a Franciscan monastery, built in honour of St Bernardino of Siena. It is surrounded by high walls and inside is a beautiful cloister. The Gothic façade opens a Renaissance Portal surmounted by statues of Saint Bonaventure, San Bernardino and San Antonio. Inside, the various chapels contain numerous frescos and paintings, while the high altar presents a triptych Madonna and San Bernardino to the Center and the Saints Peter, Paul, and Francis on the right and Jerome, Ludovico and Antonio left. There is then a beautiful 15th-century pulpit and an interesting organ with decorations of the painter Domenico Morrone. It is a splendid complex that you have to admire absolutely.

  • The Church and the cloister very beautiful but I am speaking of the accommodation. I was with my family, unfortunately not for pleasure, and stayed at the property adjoining the DOMUS SAN BERNARDINO. Cleanliness, peace and silence are the masters, comfortable rooms with large bathroom. There is the indispensable. The times may be more flexible on check out at 9, it is too early as from 8 to 9 can do breakfast. It is true you have to clear the table, but basically it doesn't weigh much, breakfast is minimal, perhaps too. The good news is that you're near Castel Vecchio and a 15-minute walk from piazza Bra, so you are in the Center. There is also a small car park (few spaces) but in the vicinity you can park. Nearby there is a bus stop that takes you where you want to.

  • Walking down the corridor of quiet frescoes around the courtyard became a solemn feeling. Also, in fine contrast of light beautifully many took pictures had. Stone of the soft hues of a medieval chapel and quaint, is worth a look. Killing time in the old town, they decided the day of the week you can see the chapel between the moron will occasionally change and I think, but this time was from 3 pm on Thursday and then revisited, both the lucky! Fewer visitors due to both the day of the week and time constraints, between the moron hog (* be [' *) talking to staff, and borrow a key outside and steps down the stairs going up to the second floor. Original library and the frescoes depicted with all the walls, was a sight to see! Window at the bottom was taken disappear indeed, but others favor 彡 Chapel and sincerely thanked the colorful and excellent state of preservation, was also a luxurious dome blue and cream colors beautiful impact is, was fascinated by dramatic and graceful altarpiece! also has many outstanding paintings, heart filled after the Church.
