Church of Santa Corona (S. Corona)

Interesting
Built in the 13C, it contains the Holy Thorn offered by the King of France St Louis to the Bishop of Vicenza. Today, two masterpieces adorn this church with three ogive naves and a Renaissance chancel: a Baptism of Christ by Giovanni Bellini and an Adoration of the Magi, by Veronese. Further mention should be made of an attractive painted and golden stucco coffered ceiling and so there are three excellent reasons for pushing open the door of this church.
