  • Very interesting church to visit, the alter is unusually to accommodate the crypt underneath, beautifully decorated inside, well worth a visit.  more »
  • The Church of San Teodoro, a Romanesque building which has a really interesting fresco in the interior showing a view of the city during the 16th century.  more »

  • Worth a visit. Highlights are the frescoes showing Pavia during the French siege (notice the canons). The painted stone statue of St Theodore near the altar is as also worth noting. Very quiet. I was the only visitor. Unlike many other churches, it doesn't close midday. In and out in 20 minutes. Free.
