It was great to just stand in the middle of the work of hundreds of people and 'be in the moment'. The Organist got really mad at the piece of paper while he was playing. I think we all had a real laugh!

It was nice to visit because it was much quieter than the other churches in the city and no crowds. Interesting artwork.

This monumental church on the main street of Bologna provides a haven of tranquillity in the heart of a busy city. It also provides much for those interested in Baroque architecture which hides it's earlier history (finished in 1184).

This is the Cathedral of Bologna, right on one of the main streets in the heart of Bologna. Simple outside but bright and colorful inside. Some large paintings hang along side walls. Massive with no real transepts.

We passed this church while walking to Piazza Maggiore. Although it didn't look like much from the outside, it was amazing on the inside. Step inside and spend a little time and you won't be disappointed.

This is along the way to the Piazza Maggoire. It looked like an ordinary church from the outside where there are 2 beggers as well. Was pleasantly surprised to see that the church was very well furnished and decorated on the inside. Entrance is free...More
