Useful information


Built in the 13C, this church is one of the most beautiful examples of the Gothic style in Italy. Note the three magnificent arches of the glossarists (legal annotators), and the particularly interesting apse. Inside the church, the fine marble altarpiece by the Venetian sculptor Paolo delle Masegne (1392) is particularly worthy of note.
