The Dominican church in Bolzano was the first Gothic style building in Tyrol, south of the Brenner. The construction works started at the beginning of the XIV century. Later, the church was restored following the standards of the mendicant order.
This is a single room with a wooden roof and a chancel in the apsis, separated from the nave by a partition with five arches. The Giotto style frescos, which are among those best preserved in Bolzano and in the surrounding areas, decorate the church interior. The Chapel of Saint John is fully covered with representations from the history of Saint John the Baptist, Saint John the Evangelist, the life of Mary and the history of Saint Nicholas.
