Biblioteca Querinaria e il Palazzo Vescovile

Piazza Martiri Belfiore
Brescia, 25100
Near the ancient Broletto building is Piazza Martiri Belfiore where the sober building of the Querinaria Library can be found (1747), built by the architect G.B. Marchetti. The original shelves from the 18th Century are shown in five rooms, which hold around 400,000 volumes of prints, 500 autographs, 2000 manuscripts and many codes, such as a precious and well-preserved Evangeliario from the 5th Century. Adjacent to the library is the Bishops Palace. Little remains from its first construction in 1437 as the building has been changed and restored many times. The 18th-century gate is by G.B. Marchetti. Inside there is a frescoed salon by Antonio Gandino with portraits of Brescia bishops and a Madonna with Child, as well as San Lorenzo Giustiniani by Moretto.
