Was really disappointed when we got here. Thought for sure with such a big facade there would be something amazing inside. Obviously a working church, not a lot to see inside. I liked the outside evangelist statues though!

This is quite a large complex but I liked the little chapels best. My favourite was the beautiful and peaceful Opilione chapel, or Sanctuary of Prosdocimus (on the right, towards the back). You're not allowed to enter the chapel itself, but even so you can...More

I enjoy the “simplicity” of this basilica. Unlike others, the ceilings and floors and much more simple. Each section contains beautiful art which is all over Italy. A pleasant surprise was the tomb of St. John the evangelist. Also buried here is St. Matthias who...More

This church is filled with wonderful paintings and other art works. The alter has beautiful carved choir stalls and the abbey courtyard is full of lovely gardens.

Very similar in the architectural structure of the nearby San Francesco church, Santa Giustina isn't nearly as ornate or as stunningly beautiful inside, but is well worth seeing. The artwork and side chapels here are all very impressive and in many ways, the bareness of...More

Great roof and exterior shots. Inside is white and has a Calvinism feel to it. Church isn't as swamped with tourist like the other basilica.

A massive structure of the church. Regretly after 1900 not possible to get in. Impressive pkace in front which for sure at better season would be a pleasant turistic attraction.
