This is one of the oldest churches in the city. It was built by the volition of Scaglieri in the 12th century in the place in which Teodorico knocked down the homonymous oratory in the sixth century. It became the city's Cathedral and housed the bodies of the first Bishops of Verona. The façade is made of strips of tuff and brick adorned with writing and paintings on either side of the entrance, which date back to the Late Middle Ages until the 16th Century.
