Presentation

The name of the square is a contraction of the toponym Braida which is likely to have been derived from the German ?breit? (large). The square started to take shape in the first half of the 16th century, when the Palazzo degli Honorij, by Sanmicheli, and other palaces and noble homes were built on the north-west side. It acquired its current shape at the end of the 18th century when the Listòn, a large Verona pink marble sidewalk, was paved. The square, which palazzo Barbieri, palazzo della Gran Guardia, and the Portoni della Bra? look on to, boasts the most peculiar monument in the city: the Arena.
