This is a very beautiful church in Bologna, right in Via D'Independenza. If you happen to walk down that street, you must visit it.

Again, you always have many religious buildings to see in most Italian cities but this is a splendid example and worth a visit.

We just popped in to this dazzling cathedral as we were ambling down Via Dell'Indipendenza on a Saturday afternoon and so glad we did. A beautiful church with wonderful light and many items of interest. A real gem.

I stumbled upon this church while out for a stroll, such a lovely space to wander in and reflect. Worth a visit if you are in the area
