  • Beautiful Cathedral with its two towers is imposed on the city. Simple and concrete, all pointing toward the sky reminds us how this architectural style you have to take care of essential to remind the faithful that no + is the opulence of the Gothic with its gold and ostentatious embellishments to be the message that leads us to God. Inside there is a beautiful reconstruction of crucifixion in natural size. To see!

  • It's a very nice and impressive Gothic Cathedral, though partly rebuilt after damage caused by wars and earthquakes. Not very big but with elegant lines. Inside I was very impressed by the great image of Saint Father Leopold Mandic, to which they are devoted for years, after visiting the Church in Padua where he confessed his whole life.
