Verona Churches: St. Giorgio in Braida

Close to the Austrian walls on the left bank of the river Adige stands the church of St Giorgio in Braida. In the eleventh century it was a Benedictine monastery but is in the sixteenth century that, thanks to the work of Michele Sanmicheli, St. George got the look it has today. The shape of the building is now characterized by the unmistakable Sanmicheli's Renaissance dome and bell tower. The elegant marble facade dates back to the end of sixteenth century.
In the inside the church has no aisles and is hosting on the two sides works by important Veronese painters: Giovanni Caroto, Felice Brusasorci, Girolamo dai Libri and many others so that Goethe, visiting the church during his journey in Verona said that St. George was a beautiful art gallery. The most important work of art of the church is the magnificent Martyrdom of Saint George by Paolo Veronese, proudly hanging above the main altar.
