Home of the Arche Scaligere

Chiesa di Santa Maria Antica is a small Romanesque church, built in 1185 on the site of a VII century church. It is notable as the private chapel of the Scala family, who built the family funerary monuments, the famous Arche Scaligere, in the church’s courtyard.

Chiesa di Santa Maria Antica is mostly visited for the Arche Scaligere, but it also has its own noteworthy features, including a small square bell tower in tuff, in pure Romanesque style.
