Santo Stefano Square

Santo Stefano is a complex of religious edifices in the city of Bologna, Italy.

Located in the eponymous square, it is locally known as Sette Chiese (“Seven Churches”).

According to tradition, it was built by Saint Petronius, who was bishop of the city during the 5th century, over a temple of the goddess Isis.

The church of St. John the Baptist dates from the 8th century, while that of the Holy Sepulchre from the 5th (renovated in the 12th century), as well as that of San VitaleĀ and Agricola.

A 13th century portico known as “Pilatus’ court” connects the other buildings to the church of the Holy Trinity (13th century).
