Saint Anastasia church. Nov 07, 2017
This church is in reality dedicated to saint Peter; co patron saint of Verona with saint Zeno. It was built between 1290 and 1500. On the site where the church is situated two churches stood. One of these was dedicated to saint Anastasia. The other to saint Remigio.

Saint Anastasia is the largest church in Verona. It houses seventeen chapels with several paintings and frescoes from the 15th to the 16th centuries.

One of the highlights of this church is the fresco painted by Pisanello in 1433. It is titled saint George freeing the princess

You will surely not miss the nice hunchbacks statues that support two holy water fonts. They are located just off the entrance of the church.

Built in the Gothic style, and constructed in the thirteenth to fifteenth centuries, this is one of the oldest churches in Verona and certainly one of its finest too. The artwork in here is simply amazing and is a great tribute to the patrons that added to this church; they were usually affluent families from the local community. Though the painters and sculptors aren’t that well known, I really enjoyed the consistently high level of detail that could be found in the paintings, statues and frescoes here. Restoration work was also being done while I was there, so there is every reason to hope that this church will be well-maintained. If you’re in Verona, I would definitely visit this church.
