San Marco Evangelista Church

Mon, 29/09/2014 - 10:19 -- Laura
Brescia, San Marco Evangelista

Built at the end of the 13th century in a Romanesque style, the church belonged to the Avogadro family: they lived in the neighbouring palace, which now houses the Catholic University. It was damaged by a bombing raid during World War II. On the outside there are small earthenware arches intertwining under the cornice that goes all round the building. On the façade (spoilt by the large rectangular window) there is a stone portal surmounted by a rounded arch. On the right hand side of the building there is a small Romanesque door with a cross in high relief. On the inside it has a single nave with a semicircular apse and the remains of frescoes painted in the 14th century.
