Basilica di Santo Stefano

A jumble of four churches make up the Basilica of St Stephen, or Basilica di Santo Stefano, dating back to the Romanesque era. With interesting cloisters, statues and artworks, the complex was once made up of seven churches.

The Church of the Crucifix houses the bones of St Petronio, and is next to the octagonal Church of the Holy Sepulcher, formerly a baptistery.

The Church of Santi Vitale e Agricola, Bologna’s oldest church, incorporates Roman masonry and mostly dates from the 11th century. The medieval cloister is a tranquil resting place, en route to a small museum.

Practical Info

The basilica is a few streets east of Piazza Maggiore and the Two Towers, in the old city.
