Basilica di San Zeno

This church is a little far from the city center.

It is dedicated to Bishop Zeno who in the III century AD converted the city to Christianity.

The church can be dated to the XII century and is certainly the best example of Romanesque religious architecture in northern Italy.

In the crypt below, it is possible to see the relics of the saint and many sculptures and paintings as the magnificent triptych of the Madonna on the Throne and Saints by Andrea Mantegna.

Address: Piazza San Zeno, 2.
