It was built in 1797 and boasts neoclassical interiors and magnificent pillars. St. Thomas Church is just as impressive and is Bach's final resting place.

Significant art collections are on view at both the Museum of Fine Arts and the Grassi Museum of Applied Arts. Check out the Asisi Panometer to see how a giant painting merges with an equally large gas tank to form a remarkable panoramic attraction.
