A reminder that the city once contained a large Serbian community, Serbian Orthodox Church of San Spiridione displays a Byzantine style of architecture characterized by a central dome and mosaic decorations featured on the facade. Covered in stone and marbles from Verona and Carrara, the building was erected in the 1860s. Inside, you'll see paintings by artist Giuseppe Bertini and icons covered in silver and gold. Found on the lower side of the iconostasis, the four major icons were designed in the 1840s in Russia and represent the church's patron saint and other religious figures.
