It is unimpressive from the outside but when you go inside it is very impressive! When you walk into the cathedral the ceiling has arched ceilings and pillars. Then you keep walking further into the building and you notice there is a completely different chapel...More

This church is a short walk from the cathedral. Its interior is – for the most part – fairly simple, though there are some nice frescoes here and there. The best frescoes, however, are in St John’s chapel, which is effectively a small side room...More

It`s near the Duomo and is good to visit inside the old frescoes and the St. John's Capel that is a masterpiece from the 13th century.

Within an otherwise boring church, the Chapel of St. John has a group of beautiful frescoes dating back to the 13th century. Well worth a short visit.

A short work from the Duomo, this church is very nice, but you must visit St. John's Capel to see the fascinating paintings, especially the one about death with the horse in the middle separating the young people from the old people, and the picture...More

The Dominican church complex is only a short walk from the central Walther Square in the city, probably most easily reached by a short stroll on an almost direct line from the Cathedral (which is at one edge of Walther Square). From the outside the...More

A really nice church with an even more beautiful Chapel inside. The main nave is unadorned due to bombing during WWII, however the Rococo choir is still nice to see. However the best part is the Chapel of St John with its amazing, Giottoesque, frescoes...More

There is a breathtaking simplicity of design and elegance in this church just off the square in the center of Bolzano. The church makes itself known on the hour with its bells, but when you enter you find a place of harmony and peace. Can't...More

During a too brief visit to the wonderful town of Bolzano we located St John's chapel off a small street a few minutes walk from the market. A German gentleman called Alfred who spoke good English gave us a guided tour of the frescoes in...More

The frescoes in this church will not astonish you the way the ones in the Branacci Chapel in Florence or the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua will, but they are worth stopping in to see. The church is right near the Duomo and the main piazza,...More
