Sacred Sites of Verona

The immense heritage of religious architecture in the region of Verona

Religious architecture in the vast artistic heritage of Verona has a very important role.

Among the most striking examples of the fusion of art and culture, is the Dome of Verona, and the Basilica of San Zeno is considered one of the masterpieces of the Romanesque style in Italy. It houses the ‘Altar-piece of San Zeno’, a masterpiece by Andrea Mantegna.

Other important Medieval churches are: the Basilica of Santa Anastasia, the Church of San Giovanni in Fonte and the Church of San Zeno in Oratorio. Just outside the walls of Verona the Church of Santo Stefano is found, an early Christian basilica probably built around the fifth century.

The province also contains many very important examples of medieval and renaissance religious architecture, located in an urban environment and within the landscape of particular charm. Also worth a visit are the ancient Sanctuary of the Madonna di Bastia on the Isola della Scala island; the beautiful Sanctuary of the Madonna del Carmine in the Negrar area, the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Rosario in San Giovanni Battista in Rivoli Veronese, the impressive Sanctuary of the Madonna della Corona in the town of Spiazzi di Caprino Veronese, the Sanctuary of the Madonna della Bassanella in Soave, the Sanctuary of Nostra Signora di La Salette in Fumane in the Valpolicella zone, the picturesque Sanctuary of the Madonna degli Angeli in Castelnuovo del Garda and the majestic Sanctuary of the Madonna del Frassino in Peschiera del Garda.
