About Piazza Santo Stefano, Bologna

A complex of seven religious buildings, the buildings in the complex are pretty old and have undergone several restorations. These restorations led to the change in the look from the seven to four churches.

The entrance is through Church of Crucifix dating back to 8th century. The church houses the 14th century crucifix, hence the name. Along with that it also showcases sculptures depicting the ‘Lamentation over the Dead Christ’.

The church displays a number of murals showcasing stories of the martyr St. Stefano. The crypt is divided into 5 naves, with each column being different from the other. The church also houses remains of St. Vitale and St. Agricola in an urn, on the left a fresco shows the ‘Madonna of the snows’ and welcoming everyone is a statue of Madonna Child at the entrance.

The oldest building of the complex is the church of holy Sepulchre. It has 12 surrounding the shrine which holds the relics of San Petronio. However in 2000 the body was moved to San Petronio’s Basilica reuniting it with its head, the sepulchre was never opened after that.It is most romantic and interesting monuments of the city, with a natural spring representing River Jordan.

One can witness the remains of the mosaic floor decorated with lions, deer and peacocks. One of the curious objects is a stone basin ‘The Basin of Pilates’ another one of them is ‘The Rooster of St. Peter’

The church is filled with many elements symbolising the passion of Christ. The same can be clearly seen in the frescos. For more information, you should visit which houses precious religious objects and works of art from the seven churches. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Bologna itinerary 3 days.

Piazza Santo Stefano, Bologna Reviews

  • A place you must visit! From the outside you just get no clue of what you will find inside. The name is a fact! Plus amongst the various sections there is also a small shop for selling natural traditional remedies. It would take a good hour to visit. Mind the opening hours!

  • Wonderful monumental complex consisting of several Romanesque churches and small museum. Must see place at Bologna. Admission is free but any donation is welcomed and highly appreciated. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light.

  • Bautiful place. Great history. A must see.

  • Fascinating church to visit. Designed to replicate a visit to the Holy Land. Quite interesting architecturally as a result. Also set in a nice piazza for a coffee or a drink.

  • Not the usual church. Instead, you will find several back patios with a cool medieval option. Small donations are welcome but it's all free
