SPECIAL OFFER - "The City of Winged Victory".
The square, of medieval origin, is the heart of the city for the important historical buildings that overlook it, symbols of civil liberties and religious traditions of Brescia. On the east side, the Broletto Palace and the two cathedrals, called the Duomo Nuovo and Duomo Vecchio, line up. The Broletto is the oldest public building in the city, home of the civic magistrates in the municipal era.
Castle of Brescia
Perched on the Cidneo hill, in a naturalistic context that represents one of the "green lungs" of the city, the castle is one of the most fascinating fortified complexes in Italy, where you can still read the signs of the different dominations. The central keep, the imposing crenellated walls and the tower narrate a Visconti influence while the mighty ramparts and the monumental entrance with drawbridge testify to the presence of the Serenissima Republic of Venice.
Santa Giulia Museum
Unique in Italy and Europe for its exhibition concept and location, the City Museum, housed in a monastic complex of Lombard origin, allows a journey through the history, art and spirituality of Brescia from prehistoric times to the present day, in an exhibition area of about 14,000 square meters.
Built on an area already occupied in Roman times by important Domus, it includes the Lombard Basilica of San Salvatore and its crypt, the Romanesque oratory of Santa Maria in Solario, the Nuns' Choir, the sixteenth-century church of Santa Giulia and the cloisters.
