Small round chapel on Mantova's central square. Ancient, forgotten over the centuries, almost lost and then rediscovered and refurbished.
Sparse decoration, beautiful Romanic architecture all red bricks and stone columns, impressive dome.
Go sit right in the middle. look up and enjoy the atmosphere!

Reminds me of one same that we have here in Greece, in Thessaloniki, and it proves that countries had commercial and architectural relationships.

Below street level, this relatively small and quiet thousand year old church had been subsumed by surrounding buildings and only rediscovered when these were demolished about one hundred years ago. Go and enjoy.

Located right by the huge Basilica, the contrast between it and this tiny structure could not be more stark. This - simple, austere. The basilica - grand and almost overwhelming. The interesting thing is that I think you appreciate them more seeing them one right after the other. For me, I believe it reinforces my amazement that I can enjoy so many different types of places and respect each one for what it is. And that I think is also why I love visiting Europe so much - the infinite variety of structures and landscapes in such a small area. For me, if I structure a trip properly, it's almost impossible for me to be bored no matter how many churches, palaces, musems, etc., I have seen.

Getting back to the Rotunda - yes, see it. It won't take you more than a few minutes and it won't overwhelm you, but you will like it and since you will certainly see the basilica, there is no reason not to stop in here.

Just popped in attracted by the shape of the building. It doesn't disappoint inside either. Despite its pristine condition outside and in you can feel the history.

Beautiful circular church in this perfect little city - take a moment to escape the heat and take in the interior structure of this old building. Loved mantua.

It is a small room so the visit is short but the inside is interesting to view. There were very few people inside so it was easy to take photos.

Simply places you back in time when worship was made with risk. I guess a lot like today. The quiet of the building was mystical.

A must to contrast against the opulence of the many other churches in the city. The simplistic construction and the fact it was almost destroyed show its importance.

Nice little church off the square. Very different from most churches I've seen, but well worth a trip inside.
