Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Verona / Verona / Chiesa di San Giorgio in Braida-Verona
San Giorgio in Braida is a Roman Catholic church in Verona, region of Veneto, Italy. A church titled San Giacomo in Braida, was located in Cremona, and became superseded by Sant'Agostino.HistoryIn 1046, the deacon of the Verona Cathedral, later bishop, Cadalo commissioned the construction of a Benedictine monastery outside the city walls, in a suburb called Braida. By 1051, the monastery was generally complete, and the Holy Roman Emperor Henry III placed it under his protection. By 1121, the monastery had a church. However, by 1127, the then bishop Bernardo expelled the monks for "keeping an abbey in a situation of spiritual, temporal, and material degradation". By 1132, the bishop with the blessing of Pope Innocent II assigned the monastery to the Canons Regular, an Augustinian order. In 1441, Pope Eugene IV favored the transfer of the monastery to the Venetian Augustinian order of Canons Regular of San Giorgio in Alga, reflecting in part the ascendancy of the republic in Verona since their fusion with Venice in 1405. In 1668, these canons were abolished by Pope Clement IX. The monastery was sold at auction, but was acquired by the Nuns of Santa Maria di Reggio, who administered the church until their suppression in 1806. The church became an oratory subsidiary to Santo Stefano, and only acquired the parish dignity in 1874.

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.

This is yet another impressive church, in a city that is full of them. That said, it is not as good as some of the others, although the dome near the altar is very impressive.

People working there are very nice and let me in on a Wednesday. The artwork there is indeed a masterpiece. There are many artworks as well but the light is not as good as the 4 churches to which you need to pay the entrance fee.
Pretty building. Closed when we went
