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.

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.
