Friday continued

We resumed our walk, working our way back toward the river until we came to the Chiesa di Santa Anastasia. The current church was started in 1290 and mostly completed in 16th Century. The facade was never completed.

Chiesa di Santa Anastasia is the largest church in Verona. Its basilica extends over three large aisles supported by 12 red Veronese marble pillars. The church is a virtual art museum filled with frescos, statues, paining and many altars.
