If visiting Mantova this is one of the sights that you should include on your tour. Not as magnificent as some but worth the time.

If you visit Mantova, you should visit at least a few sights, amongst those, this basilica is probably one of the best rewarding visits, especially in the summer, since it is quite cold inside, so you can sit, rest and enjoy the nice fresques.

It's the a very beautiful basilica . Fantastic frescoes on the walls looking sometimes like 3D sculptures, All the interior of the basilica is overwhelming. It's absolutely to be visited if you're in the area or it's even worth a trip for it.

This Basilica is actually more impressive than the nearby cathedral. The interior is ornately painted with a lot of tromp l'oeil style details. It is a must see in Mantua.

Stunning interiors. Go under the dome and look up - the impression is to gaze upon the paradise itself. Also amazing frescos on the walls with perfect prospective shadows that seem to be bas-relief
