The Church of St. Euphemia is a Catholic basilica dedicated to the Great Martyr Euphemia the All-Praiseworthy.
Construction of the church began in 1275, and in 1331 it was consecrated. Over the centuries, the building was rebuilt several times, and acquired its present appearance only in the 15th century. During this period, a Gothic portal was built, which was decorated with statues of saints, and two tall windows appeared on the facade, separated by a column. Under the right window was placed the tomb of Verit, the floor with the left window - and ndash; headstone and marble sarcophagus of Lavagnoli. A Romanesque bell tower was added to the church.
The basilica has one nave. The interior of the church was decorated with modern frescoes. The following works of art are kept in the side chapels and altars: Madonna with Saints works by Domenico Brusasorchi; `` Anthony the Great '', `` Saint Barbara '' and 'Rukh' works by Torbido; `` Saint Thomas '' the works of Cignaroli; Saint Augustine by Stefano da Verona.
The Church of St. Euphemia, along with other landmarks of Verona, was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
