    San Luca church

    S. Luca church

    Favorite thing: . Luca's, founded by the Romans, has on the left side, close by its face the Tempietto di Cristo Risorto, built in 1503, as thanks for the ending of the plague, on the architect B. de Lera 's design, who interpreted Bramante's language in Cremona. The construction, with brick parameter, has an octagonal plan and it has got three floors with three portals which are alternated to blind arches and a mullioned window with two lights in each side of the two high parts. Inside it is decorated with a set of paintings including the fresco of the dome, with a Gloria d'angeli, four Sibille, four Profeti, and seven canvas, four of them are situated in the sections among the pilaster strips and three of them are above the doors, representing the Storie della Passione. The local historical sources, starting from the XVII century, agree to ascribe the whole set of paintings to the Cremonensis G. B. Trotti said Malosso who, starting from the last decade of the sixteenth century, dominated the Cremonensis pictorial scene, the stylistic test on the paintings and the frescos has however led critics to believe that they didn't belong to Trotti, but to various authors, his followers of course, who painted them in the first decade of the seventeenth century.

    Palazzo Raimondi

    Favorite thing: Worth to see is the Palazzo Raimondi, a dignified building made distinctive by its frescoed cornice. Conceived by the humanist Raimondi, it now houses the prestigious International School of Violin Making and its associated Museo Organologico.

    Don't climb the Torrazzo when it's like this...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: In the pianura padana, winter brings lots of fog. While the bell tower may still be open (it's closed only when the wind is strong), chances are the view from above won't be very impressive...
