Famous for its wooden ceiling, San Fermo Maggiore, Verona holds the remains of two local saints. Completed in the 15th century, the building combines elements of both Romanesque and Gothic styles. The wooden ceiling extends over the nave, while two paintings of the crucifixion occupy prominent spaces above the main and side entrances. Take a look at the tomb of Nicolo Brenzoni, a wealthy Veronese citizen who died in 1422. Considered a minor masterpiece, the tomb features elements carved by sculptor Nanni di Bartolo, as well as painted images by Renaissance artist Pisanello.

  • Visit of the main Veronese churches in the company of my wife. We could not miss the Church of San Fermo, a refined example of Gothic style diffused in Italy by the Franciscan Friars who modified and enlarged the underlying Benedictine church, pearl of Romanesque architecture. The beautiful wooden ceiling of the upper church structured like the reversed hull of a ship is very articulated as ornaments and decorations is truly a must. Of particular value a fresco of Pisanello, but noteworthy all the pictorial works present and the other numerous frescoes ranging from the XII to the FIFTEENTH century.

  • Church composed of a lower and upper part. In the upper part you can admire the enchanting wooden ceiling. In the price of the ticket is included the audioguide very exhaustive. Worth the visit, the advice. Maybe a must to see when you are in Verona.

  • It is a big church standing along the river Adige. The exterior looks like the other churches in Verona, but it has a brick-striped pattern, but it was a splendid building with decorations. When I went inside, some of them were bald, but the frescoes were drawn and there was a crib in the basement.
