  • Lovely church just off the main city square. Interesting exhibit. In a country full of beautiful churches this one was a pleasant experience.

  • For 2 euro you can see some wonderful terracotta statues. The church itself is ok, nothing particularly great about it otherwise.

  • One of the most interesting places to visit in Bologna. The church is not very large, but the most interesting here is the composition of terracotta figures representing the overthrow of Christ from the cross. There is also a very interesting museum for the construction of the Neptune fountain. A separate entrance fee is required for the museum and terracotta figures.

  • It was cool and all but not a “must see”. Definitely take a stop by if you have time though!

  • One of the prettiest buildings I have seen in Bologna! A must visit.
