Wonderfully dark, interesting capitals, front is sadly very eroded, but there are many different Michael Archangel bas-reliefs if you look. Don't miss it. It is also often open all day with knowledgeable volunteers

This is one of the most impressive rοmanesque basilicas of Pavia. The visit was definitely worthwhile. A monument that should certainly see.

Whilst the Duomo was a bit of a let down, San Michel mad up for it. It is difficult to describe how beautiful this ancient basilica is. Just marvel at the outside before stepping in and being blown away. Loved it!!!!! To bad there was...More
