Monuments Mantua

The Gonzagas have made Mantua a jewel of the Italian Renaissance visible in its palaces, monuments, churches, culture and traditions

Monuments Mantua. A city of a glorious past, as shown by one of a kind attractions and monuments. Lombardy offers unforgettable opportunities to engage in cultural tourism.

Mantua will astonish you with the suggestive Palazzo Te, commissioned by Federico II Gonzaga and frescoed in its interiors at the  Camera di Amore e Psiche or the Sala dei Giganti.

Head to Piazza Sordello, the heart of ancient and modern Mantuan life. Here you have the opportunity of visiting monuments such as the Cathedral, the Palazzo Ducale, the Domus Magna with its paintings and tapestries and Torre della Gabbia.

When it comes to religious monuments in Lombardy, remember the  Rotonda di San Lorenzo and the Temple of San Sebastiano, designed by Leon Battista Alberti. Then there are the Houses of Mantegna and Rigoletto stand out along the Lodges (Pescherie) of Giulio Romano, originally devised for fish trade.

Tourism in Mantua gives you the chance of seeing the Bibiena and Sociale theaters, or go discover the monuments in Mantua's surroundings like the Teatro Olimpico by Scamozzi, the Galleria degli Antichi and the Renaissance buildings of Sabbioneta.
