“Dark and Old”

Reviewed 23 May 2018 via mobile

Everything has its beauty and mystery, I guess this church does too. Seemed very dark with darker pictures and alter area.
Wouldn’t seek it out with everything else there is to do.

Thank Patricia D

A very nice Basilica beside the Ossa Bones church. Very Dark beautiful and peaceful inside. There is no admission fee and worth a 15 minute visit.

We were looking the the Ossuary and thought it was in this church........It is infact just next door!
Anyway we went inside and everything was rather dark and dreary with plaster falling off the ceiling, we thought we were on the set of a spooky movie and someone would slam the door and we would be in the pitch dark! We wandered down one side aisle to the front and then up the other side aisle to leave. We didn't spend more than five minutes here.
Ok if you like churches and architecture...................

San Stefano originated in the 5th century and was reconstructed in the 12 century after a fire destroyed it in 1075. The style of the church is now Neoclassic. The main chapel is quite attractive and the church is quite large.

Close to the Duomo and the University. Famous building, representative for the period. The ceiling is particularly interesting.
