Complesso del Duomo

The last church on my Verona Card, but the most grand!

The original church was consecrated by my newly found favorite saint, San Zeno, in 362-380, but soon turned out to be too small and several decades later was replaced by a larger basilica.

The Cathedral has gone through many changes over its life due to various reasons including an earthquake.  The latest work, restoration of the frescoes, was completed in 2002.

As you can imagine, it being a Cathedral, it is very large and has several sizable chapels as well. It is also beautifully adorned with marble and frescoes and stunning paintings, including one by Titian.

The Baptistery includes a massive baptismal font made from a single piece of marble that really can’t be captured in a photo.
