The majority of this Romanesque basilica, dedicated to Verona’s patron saint San Zeno, who was said to have converted Verona to Christianity in the fourth century, dates back to the 12th century. The ornate church’s red and whit striped exterior is characterized by bands of red brick and white stone and at the church’s west entrance are bronze paneled doors depicting scenes from the Bible and the life of San Zeno. Within the church pay special attention to the crypt of San Zeno, Andrea Mantegna’s 15th-century altarpiece Madonna and Saints (below) and the rose window, referred to as the Wheel of Fortune.
