Kind of out of the way of most of the tourist attractions. It seemed deserted and I’m glad we took a chance on it. It was really peaceful. There is a courtyard to walk around and you can enjoy the frescos that art painted all...More

The Franciscan Friary, originally built during the 13th century, however, its present form is mostly from the 14th century. It was bombed during WWII and thus partly rebuilt, losing many of its interior frescoes. It features a nice Gothic altar by Hans Klocker, and a...More

Located in heart of Bolzano, just off the main shopping trek. It was delightfully quiet ...don't be put off by "closed doors" - unlocked. Inside is a beautifully light church of antiquity with some modern.

This church, very close to the town centre, has a light, open aspect which is very pleasing. The stained-glass windows are simple yet beautiful, and it’s a delightful place to visit.

This church of high arches is dominated by its magnificent altar piece and tall stained glass windows. The adjacent cloister is peaceful and contains considerable fragments of art from a wide range of periods scattered over walls and ceiling. A delightful hours diversion

I always enjoy seeing the interiors of churches, and make it a part of my touring through just about any city. More than just a church, this is a monastery, and I was impressed by the Franciscan church not just for its interior, but for...More

Not as wide as the normal churches, it has an amazing roof. One of the few such churches in bolzen, it is a must visit for a visitor who loves such architecture.
