Church of Santo Stefano

Piazzetta Santo Stefano (BL)


The church of Santo Stefano in Belluno is an Italian gothic style Catholic place of worship.

The construction of the church, designed by Giorgio Tagliapietra da Como, began in 1468 to serve the village of Santo Stefano, which at the time was outside the city walls. It was begun by the monks of the Order of Servites, who had a convent nearby (the convent was suppressed in 1806 and the building now hosts the Superintendency of Finance). During the archaeological excavation of the tower, a Roman sarcophagus of Caius Flavius Hostilius and his wife Domitia was found. It is now preserved in the courtyard of Palazzo Crepadona in Belluno.
