Santo Stefano is a complex of religious buildings in the city of Bologna, Italy. It is known locally as ‘Sette Chiese’ (Seven Churches) and is recognised as a minor basilica. It is debated in the city of when and why the complex was built. The complex is seven different churches built in the same grounds, of which only four remain standing in full glory today. The different churches all have their own styles that span centuries through Bologna’s architectural history and they are all set apart in some way that makes them unique.
The complex is situated within the city centre of Bologna. It is accessible on foot or by using the 14, 19, 25 or 27 buses that stop close by.
Opening Times and Admission
The complex is open to the public daily, 9.15am-7.15pm. Entry is free but a donation is welcomed.
