LocationBolzano - Bozen, Italy

The Chiesa dei Domenicani is a medieval church in Bolzano/Bozen, South Tyrol, northern Italy.

The church, one of the earliest examples of Gothic architecture in Tyrol, was founded by the Dominicans after their arrival, in a location that was then outside the city's walls. The construction ended in 1272 but was expanded in the following century. The quarter which originated from the monks' church and convent became known as Neustadt; their cultivated lands were nationalized by the Fascist regime in 1930s. The church was damaged by bombs during World War II.

The church has a single hall two rows of octagonal pillars. The presbytery, separated a five-span bridge, was rebuilt in Baroque style in the 18th century; in 1458-1468 the church and the cloister received new vaults in Gothic style.
