“Visted this site 3 times in 9 years, Loved it.”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

Put this on your list of must visits when in Brescia. The unusual design, the impressive painting details, all from the 14th century. That is what makes this place unique, it is so old but yet the engineering and art work is "wow". If I am in Brescia again, I would visit it a 4th time.

“intriguing architecture”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

Very interesting early medieval church, remarkable not only for its unusual design but also for its spare interior. Brescia is certainly worth a day, and especially the City Museum. Not as flashy as some of the Italian cities, but remarkably deep and broad in its art and history.

“Interesting interrior”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

I've been there very shortly since the mass was going on. I was not impressed by Duomo Vecchio (Duomo Nuovo is fantastic). The only interesting thing for me was that when you enter, you are on kind of balcony, and the man hall is downstairs, in kind of niche. I never seen this before

“A place of real Romanic History”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

This is one of the few example of Romanic Circle based Christian Church existing in the world.
It is amazing and very spiritual to be visited. Still place of pray and meditation.
Needs to be seen.

“Beautiful antique Romanesque round church”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

a fabulous round church, quite plain inside for an Italian church but this only emphasises more its simple antiquity. The ancient basilica underneath is very atmospheric. It is also lovely to see the mosaics through the glass. Brescia itself is well worth a visit as it has many beautiful churches.
