We passedSanta Maria and decided to look inside on a whim and what a pleasant surprise! From the plain frontage and understated signage don't indicate the stunning interior of this church. Stop by if you get the chance.

In the foreground there are beautifl arcades, which are typical for Bologna. The church itself has got a lot to offer an art, like Cimabues work, and a lot more. The altar is a masterpiece.

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.
