a must see in Aosta
Sep 2021
The cloister with its medieval capitals are a must see not only for art historians but for anybody who is interested in medieval sculpture!

Visit the cloister
Apr 2019 • Couples
This wonderful church was built in the 11th century, with 15th century frescoes. Don't miss the cloister with its amazing Old Testament capital carvings.

BEWARE Parking in Aosta is impossible

Beware parking in Aosta is impossible so do not think of breaking your trip there. If you are not staying then pass on by.

Visit the crypt
Jun 2017 • Family
I did notice that the reviews do not mention the crypt below the alter. To the right of the alter you will see a sign that says crypt. Go down and take a look, very interesting. There is a tunnel under the figure of the saint. It is said that if you suffer from a bad back and you crawl through the tunnel you will be healed. The church is beautiful of course. The cloister next door is also very nice. Look at the cornice at the top of the columns. The represent the story of of the life of Jesus. It takes a little work but you can follow it around to courtyard. Enjoy

This beautiful church is the history of Aosta. Be sure to visit the courtyard next door. The carved altar seating is beautiful.

Nice both outside and inside
Dec 2015 • Friends
Externally there is a nice cloister, with different decorations on each column. Internally, among the rest, a piece of ancient mosaic on the floor that by itself is worth the visit.

hidden frescoes
Oct 2015 • Couples
At certain times (ask at the information office) some volunteers from the church accompany you to the attic, where few frescoes are still visible after the remodeling of the church has hidden. It's an interesting and exciting visit that let you see the building from the top. The nearby cloister is just as beautiful.

One of the must sees in town, without a doubt
Sep 2015
The Church is a must-see but everything around it as well, such as the tower in front, the cloisters next door, and especially the FRESCOES. Only problem is that they seem to be open only for the summer season nowadays. The Priory is also remarkable for its use of brick. Anyway, it's free and picturesque.

Pretty little church
Feb 2015
I like the facade of the church with its red brick trim. Inside, it is light filled. The vaulted ceiling is special. When you go up close to the altar, you can appreciate the carvings on the wooden seats surrounding it. These must have been for the choir. There are numerous animals and human figures carved under seats and on top. We were fascinated by them.
