Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Travel lovers remember very well that Verona stretches along both banks of the Adige, but at the same time, its historical center is located on the right bank, on a giant “tongue” formed by a bizarre bend of the river bed. The left bank probably began to settle in parallel with the right, but it was still far from the historical and architectural scope of the right bank.
But both in Veronetta and in Borgo Trento the seeker must see and find!!! It was there, “beyond the river” that I quite by chance found an interesting religious building - the church of the Benedictine monastery of San Giorgio in Braida.
You can easily find it in St. George's Square (Piazzetta San Giorgio), having crossed from Citta Antica to the left bank of the Adige along the Garibaldi Bridge (and then move along the river clockwise), or along the Pietra Bridge (and, in this case, go counterclockwise arrows). Taking into account the height of the huge dome of the church and the nearby companium, the temple is clearly visible from different points of the Adige left bank.
The history of chiesa di San Giorgio in Braida goes back to the 11th century: in 1046, Pietro Cadalo, the future antipope named Honorius II (from 1061 to 1064), sponsored the construction of a Benedictine monastery in the Veronetta area. What explains this generosity? Perhaps because he was from Verona?
We don’t know what the built monastery looked like, since it was seriously damaged during the terrible earthquake of 1117 (only the base of the bell tower remains from the monastery buildings). Already in 1442, when the former monastery complex came into the possession of the congregation of San Giorgio in Alga (Congregatio Canonicorum Sancti Georgii in Alga Venetiarum), created in Venice at the end of the 14th century by a group of nobles, the construction of monastic buildings in the Renaissance style began.
These are exactly what we see today, with minor changes in subsequent years. Due to the fact that the Venetian congregation was “closed” in 1669, the monastery “moved into the hands” of the nuns of Santa Maria in Reggio (what kind of nuns and what order - I still don’t understand). In 1807, the monastery was closed and during the construction of fortifications in Veronetta by the Austrians, in 1837 most of the monastery complex was demolished.
And only in the first half of the 20th century was a partial reconstruction of the monastery carried out in stylistic imitation of the architecture of the 16th century. About the architecture of the monastery temple: alas, no reliable data has been preserved about the author of its project. However, quite extensive documentary evidence that has survived to this day allows us to confidently assert that such architecture gurus as Francesco da Castello, a descendant of a family of stone-cutters from Lombardy, and Paolo Farinati, an artist, were directly involved in the construction of chiesa di San Giorgio in Braida , engraver and architect in the mannerist style, Michele Sanmicheli, architect and town planner, citizen of the Republic of Venice, relative and student of the latter Bernardino Brugnoli.
If the consecration of the temple is understandable - in honor of St. George, then the word “Braida” in the name of the temple raises questions. I found out that the place in present-day Veronetta, where the monastery and church of St. George was built, in ancient times was called “prati dominico” (Dominico’s meadow) or “pradonego” (something like a peripheral meadow, since it was located outside the city walls ). The meadows were mowed (that is, they were intended for making hay).
And then an indescribable play on words begins in Lombard, German, Italian - with the word “brei” or “breit”, which ultimately means “fenced meadow”. Personally, in this “puzzle” I realized that the word “Braida” in the name of the sacral is associated with the place of its construction - on a mowed, probably fenced, meadow outside the city walls.
The “face” of chiesa di San Giorgio in Braida, of course, is its pretty façade. Conceptually, it has been preserved since the time of the canons of San Giorgio in Alga. Its author is unknown, although various sources, in addition to Michele Sanmicheli, Paolo Farinati and Bernardino Brugnoli mentioned above, mention the names of Jacopo Sansovino, the chief architect of the Venetian Republic, and Vincenzo Scamozzi, a Renaissance architect and set designer of the Venetian Republic.
The facade of the temple, in general, has a purely Renaissance appearance using two orders - Ionic and Corinthian, as well as some elements of Baroque architecture. The church is crowned by a huge (by the standards of Verona) dome - a creation of the first half of the 16th century according to the design of Michele Sanmicheli. You probably noticed that the style of the dome is Roman?
I believe that this reference to the architecture of the Eternal City reminds us that Signor Sanmicheli once had the opportunity to work under the direction of Antonio da Sangallo the Younger, an Italian architect known for his work in the Renaissance and Mannerist styles. The dome of San Giorgio in Braida has a diameter of 14 meters and its oculus (hole in the top) is located 34 meters above the floor of the church.
Legends say that the bell tower of Chiesa di San Giorgio in Braida was designed by the same Michele Sanmicheli, but there is a high probability that Bernardino Brugnoli also had a hand in its construction. Be that as it may, when you look at the companion of the Church of St. George, you feel that it is not completed. And indeed it is!!! There are many assumptions why the bell tower remained a “kurguz”: starting from a banal lack of funds for its completion and ending with the assumption that, by someone’s agreement, it could not be higher than the Lamberti Tower.
The object is very interesting in historical and architectural terms. I definitely recommend!!!

Passing by chance in front of this beautiful Church we entered and one of the two ladies inside asked us if we wanted to be accompanied for a short visit without obligation.
Unfortunately we didn't have time, but as far as possible, we accepted after a small offer that was never requested.
Mrs. accompanied us to the main altar where she explained the immense and valuable paintings to us, then before leaving she turned on the lights of a couple of side works of which I have attached photos.
If we had had time we would have visited the rest too, but that will be for next time.
For those interested, the two ladies are from the Verona Minor Hierusalem Foundation and are available for the above on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
They gave us a brochure illustrating 3 paths through art, history and spirituality in 18 churches in Verona, namely REBORN FROM WATER, FROM EARTH and FROM SKY. Very interesting.

Imposing church that can be seen from afar. Too bad it's on a very busy avenue. The structure dates back to 1046. Also in this case the earthquake of 1117 was devastating and in the 15th century the restoration began, transforming it with classic Renaissance criteria. The chapels are a little dark.

t’s really not that far and if you don’t want to walk a lot, you shouldn’t be visiting Verona. There is a lot to see and it is great walking city, for it’s size one of the best. The walk to it is pretty and pleasant. This church looks very interesting from a distance and it looks pretty good close up, as well. The interior is interesting, as well, with an unusual shape and configuration. There are attractive paintings. Is it top-tier? By no means. Indeed, the competition for your vacation time in Verona is so fierce and even the options for churches are plentiful enough that unless you have at least 4-5 days ( or you get out early and move quickly), it’s hard to recommend visiting here. Nonetheless, it’s not bad and I am a voracious viewer of churches of all shapes and sizes. Perhaps you keep it in reserve for a second or third visit, as this one was for us.

Si trova nel quartiere Veronetta questa maestosa chiesa che si affaccia sull'Adige caratteristica per la sua cupola scura. L'interno ha un'unica navata ed è ricco di svatiate opere d'arte.

Первоначально это был монастырь, основанный в 11 веке. В 15 веке был полностью перестроен и монастырский комплекс стал состоять из главного храма и пристроенных к нему небольших жилых помещений.

La chiesa, che domina la sponda dell’Adige sul alto del Colle S. Pietro e del teatro romano, risale al XV secolo, mentre la facciata è seicentesca ed esaltata dalla bella cupola del Sanmicheli

L’interno, che è a navata unica, conserva pregevoli opere come: La Pentecoste di Domenico Robusti, figlio di Jacopo (XVI sec.); la “Madonna della cintura” di Gerolamo dai Libri (XVI sec.); il “Battesimo di Gesù” di Jacopo Tintoretto e il “Martirio di San Giorgio” di Paolo Veronese.

Interessante visita resa ancor più gradevole dalla disponibilità di un gruppo di volontari che, al bisogno, forniscono ulteriori spiegazioni e chiarimenti sulla chiesa

Auf unserem Rückweg vom Castel San Pietro entlang der Etsch in die Innenstadt kamen wir eher zufällig an der Chiesa di San Giorgio in Braida vorbei. Eigentlich wäre laut den an der Tür angeschriebenen Zeiten geöffnet gewesen, leider war die Tür dennoch verschlossen. Keine Ahnung, ob dies orona-bedingt war, wir konnten djedenfalls nur von Außen etwas sehen.

This is one of the buildings that highlights when you see the city from Castel San Pietro. The church is not much but is worth the visit.
