Colleoni chapel

Recommended
Built between 1470-1476 by Amadeo this marvel of Renaissance art has an elegant façade decorated liberally and jubilantly with religious or profane subjects. The interior is decorated with extremely finely worked sculptures and frescoes by Tiepolo, harbours funerary monuments of Bartolomeo Coleonni (surmounted by an equestrian statue of the mercenary leader ) and his daughter Medea, worked carefully and with great attention to detail by Amadeo.
