Pavia has some wonderful churches. San Pietro in Ciel d'oro is one of the prettiest, with lovely internal decoration and a long history. Note the celtic designs on the front portico.

his was more strict about covering legs than all others in Pavia. We arrived in shorts on a 34 degree day. However it is an Romanesque delight and worth going back to get a cover-up

We were there for a mass, and the church is beautifully cared by the monks. Saint Agustino is buried there.

This is another fine example of an old church built in the Romanesque style. Here lie the mortal remains of St Augustine and other notables. Note the fine carvings above and around the entry portal.

We were unable to enter, but the glass doors allowed us to see inside. The church was absolutely lovely. We look forward to going back in the future. It closes during the day from 1300-1500.

In the center of Pavia this church adjacent to a monastery holds the tomb of St. Augustine and of a Longobard saint. Unfortunately it's not well publicized and you have to do some research to find it. Closed between noon and 3 p.m.
