San Zeno Maggiore. Sep 22, 2017
This large church is the third structure built on this site.

It was rebuilt between 1120 and 1138 over a 4th century shrine to Verona' s patron saint; Saint Zeno. He was the eight Verona's bishop. This church was enlarged between the XIII and the XIV centuries.

The saint's body was laid in a into the crypt inside this church. This crypt dated to the X centuries.

As some other churches in Verona San Zeno Maggiore has lots of beautiful frescoes. These were painted between the XII and the XIV centuries.

Very long ago this church belonged to a Benedictine monastery. Today we can see only a tower and a cloister that were part of this manastery.
