The Sanctuary of Santa Maria della Vita is a late-Baroque-style, Roman Catholic church in central Bologna, near the Piazza Maggiore.
It was cool and all but not a “must see”. Definitely take a stop by if you have time though!
One of the most interesting places to visit in Bologna. The church is not very large, but the most interesting here is the composition of terracotta figures representing the overthrow of Christ from the cross. There is also a very interesting museum for the construction of the Neptune fountain. A separate entrance fee is required for the museum and terracotta figures.
One of the prettiest buildings I have seen in Bologna! A must visit.
One of the small churches right in the middle of the town center. A small jewel worth seeing with a very interesting story. Inside you will find the master art piece "Il compianto" by Nicolò dell'arca. It is in my modest opinion, probably one of the most amazing art sculpture that bologna has to offer. I gave a 4 starts and not five because the price to see the sculpture, is maybe a little to high (4€).
One of the city's most impressive landmarks-both the main sanctuary and the adjacent oratorio.
The sculpture i o f terracotta is exceptional . Do not forget to climb to the Oratory: the show is just as impressive. You can not visit this church which incidentally is very close to the Piazza Maggiore
Amazing place - go to the oratory - it is free and extremely beautiful!
Worth to pay and see the oratory
Inside the beautiful Church of Santa Maria della Vita (founded in the second half of the 13th century) a true masterpiece of the Italian sculpture can be seen: it was modelled by Niccolò dell'Arca in the second half of the 15th century and it depicts a Lamentation over the Dead Christ. You will be impressed by this piece of art.
