Sant'Anastasia, Verona

Sant'Anastasia, Verona (must see)

The Sant’Anastasia is one of the biggest churches in Verona. Construction began on the structure in 1290 and was completed in 1481. It was designed by Dominican friars Fra’ Benvenuto and Fra’ Nicola da Imola. The place of worship was built over an old church that was dedicated to Saint Anastasia. It is located in the oldest part of the city and is a very popular church.

The building reflects a Gothic design and features three naves. The exterior façade of the building is brickwork and has stained glass windows and two belfries. The interior of the church is decorated with sculptured reliefs and statues that represent well-known saints and the life of Jesus. The tomb of Guglielmo di Castelbarco is near the church entrance.

Verona churches are well known for the beautiful artwork displayed in their cathedrals and the Anastasia continues this tradition. Visitors will enjoy paintings of Saint Martino by Francesco Caroto and the Annunciation by Michele Giambono. Admittance to the building is free with a VeronaCard.

Why You Should Visit:
If you like church architecture, this is definitely one to visit as it's the most important Gothic-style religious monument in Verona.
The basilica has recently benefited from a lot of cleaning and restoration work, particularly inside where the artworks are spectacular.

Tip:
Get yourself an audio-guided tour for a small admission fee to get familiar with the history of the place and the artwork.
Alternately, consider buying either a VeronaCard or a ticket that allows you to visit the 4 largest places of worship in Verona (they both give a nice discount).

Mon-Sat: 9am-6pm; Sundays & Holidays: 1-6pm (Mar-Oct); Mon-Sat: 10am-1pm / 1:30-5pm, Sundays & Holidays: 1-5pm (Nov-Feb)
