Arguably, the most impressive (and quite unique) feature of this church is the vaulted wooden ceiling.

The church is very plain but the ceiling is a medieval marvel if wooden beams and timbers forming squares supporting the roof. Not gilded or carved like others but it's still there. here is also where you collect the hop on and off bus as...More

From the exterior this large church does not seem very promising, especially as it is just a stones throw away from the amazing Scrovegni Chapel. Once inside you enter a large ,light, airy place that sustained tremendous damage during WWII. If you are a fan...More

Out of all the churches that are mentioned as interesting touristic spots, this one is possibly the least interesting. The facade is very clean, and clearly isn't maintained properly. Unfortunately, it was closed when I got there, so I can speak to the inside.
