Basilica of San Domenico Bologna Reviews
Two wonderful chapels Oct 10, 2010
Despite the simplicity of the building exterior, this church is very impressive and probably the best one I’ve seen in Bologna.
The two chapels of San Domenico are just amazing. I’m not even going to bother describing them; just see the attached pictures and judge for yourself! In the chapel of San Domenico are two carved figures on each side holding these candles. The one on the right was carved by Michelangelo when he was just nineteen years old. I spent ages just admiring these two chapels; the domes are incredible and no attention to detail has been spared.
Admission is free and photography is allowed.
Definitely the one church visit you should not miss out on while visiting Bologna. Highly recommended.
