Lots of interesting paintings and artefacts, this is a working church and our visit was cut short due a service taking place at one side, we did not wish to intrude.
Set in the Piazza Andrea Mantegna, opposite the Ducal Palace, this wonderful basilica is home to a relic of the Holy Blood and the resting place of the artist Andrea Mantegna. With St Andrew being the patron saint of Scotland, I always have an affinity...More
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.
This basilica is one of the main works of 15th- century Renaissance architecture,there is a crypt where stored Sacred Vessels with relic of Holy Blood.
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.
Large basilica with attractive dome and facade. Ornate painted interior with impressive examples of trompe l'oeil technique.
