This imposing Gothic building is one of the largest in the city. It is completely made of bricks, and has three naves with transepts and five polygonal apses. It was founded by the Dominicans in 1290 on the site of an Arian convent and church. A twin portal, made of polychrome marble and includes some renaissance reliefs, opens on the incomplete façade. The architrave is decorated with sculptures representing the life of Christ, and these are flanked by niches containing statues of Saint Chiara and Saint Anastasia. The flooring is made of multi-colored marble and dates back to 1462. You should see the Cortesia Serego's large tomb, attributed to Nanni di Bartolo and dating back to the first half of the 15th Century. The altar pieces with paintings of Saint Martino by Francesco Caroto (16th Century) and the Annunciation by Michele Giambono are also worth seeing.
