SS. Apostoli Church

SS. Apostoli Church

This paleochristian church dates back to the early 12th century, but it was continually added to until the 18th century. In particular, the interior was totally altered, and the three naves reduced to one. It contains an altarpiece by Turchi and a Pentecost by Brentana.

The outer walls, apse and beautiful bell tower have kept their Romanesque style and there was probably a cantilever doorway on the facade.

The chapel, dedicated to two martyred saints is next to the church. It was begun in the 5th century and consecrated in 751, and is one of Verona's oldest religious buildings. The Greek cross layout is perhaps due to its funereal role.

From the 14th century onwards, the chapel was used by the Bevilacqua family.
