This is the most interesting church I've ever explored. The history of the church building dates to early centuries and was built upon over the years. Have a good guidebook to help you explore the seven churches and set aside more than an hour to visit. It is fascinating to see how the church architecture evolved over the centuries. Do not miss this site if you enjoy history and old architecture. This not your typical European church visit.

The spiritual centre of Bologna. Although under repair when we visiting, this is clearly one of the most impressive and important churches in western Europe.

Found this place on a self guided walking tour. It was a little disappointing. First and foremost, we walked in and were greeted by a beggar holding a little cup asking for money. No one was monitoring the church and there was lots of trash in front where it appeared homeless had been living.
There are far more beautiful churches in Bologna to spend any time here.
