Show sight on map

San Giovanni Church in Valle is a Roman Catholic place of worship in Via di Verona, Verona. One of the oldest churches in Verona, built on the original site of pagan cemeteries and Roman temples. Little or nothing is known about the original building, but some factors, such as its location in the area of Theodoric the Great's Castelum, suggest it may have originally been the Aryan Cathedral of Verona rather than the Catholic Church of San Stefano. The early church, however, retained only a portion of what is now the crypt, as the rest of the building was severely damaged in the Verona earthquake of 1117. In 1164, the Bishop of Verona, Ognibene, ordained the building. In the Middle Ages, there was also a university church composed of clergy. In 1300, it was decided to expand the building's classrooms, extend the nave by one span, incorporate the original Narthex into the church, and rebuild the facade. The building did not undergo any major alterations over the following centuries, but was badly damaged during a bombing in World War II; Therefore, at the end of the conflict, it was affected by complete repair.
