This church is one of Bologna's finest. The place before the entrance with portico's is nice, but the church itself is a beauty. The altar is rich, note the pews! Behind the altar one sees the monument of the Grati family made by Onofori. Don't miss the Maesta of Cimabue.

The highlight is a Cimabue Enthroned Madonna. You pay your Euro to light it up for a generous amount of time. Bear in mind it is a working parish church and services take place. No one minds you going on with your visit so long as you mind your manners.
