Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • A very old church that was built in 1451 that still has some beautiful statues to see. If you have some extra time this church is worth a quick visit.  more »
  • 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.
