Brescia, Chiesa di San Giorgio

San Giorgio is one of the better preserved and at the same time lesser known Romanesque churches in Brescia, standing well hidden behind the spectacular 16th century façade that acts as background to Piazza San Giorgio. It stands on the steep Cidneo slope, just outside Porta Bruciata, next to the Roman walls that climb towards the castle. The building works carried out during the Baroque period did not change the dimensions of the three-aisled church, with its three-apse presbytery and a bell tower to the east. Behind the church – under which passes the double conduit of the Roman aqueduct of Mompiano – can still be seen the remains of the large three-storey rectory dating back to the middle ages.
