It's right beside the new Cathedral and perhaps suffers from being in its shadow. I didn't find it... read more

Surprisingly beautiful side alters in this Duomo. I felt it was more beautiful as a church than the Duomo in Florence.

It's right beside the new Cathedral and perhaps suffers from being in its shadow. I didn't find it very inviting though the usher was helpful. Its successor is much more attractive.

Worth it to visit since I did not seen anything like it in Europe. Been there twice and will revisit again. Brescia is even a clean, nice and quite city.

This church has two levels, which makes it unique in its way. Men must take off the cap when entering the church.
