Verona Things to Do: 876 reviews and 1,668 photos
This church stands next to the tombs of the Scaligeri family who once ruled over Verona. The church is built in Romanesque style on the site of a previous church dating from the 7th century. The current structure was rebuilt from the older church in 1185. The present-day church became the private chapel of the Scaligeri family who then built their cemetary area in the churches courtyard. Around 1630, the inside of the church was modified in the baroque style, but at the end of the 19th century the church was restored to its original style.
