  • The present Cathedral of San Lorenzo was built between 1486 and 1517 by order of the Bishop of Alba Andrea Novelli, who in 1483, when he took possession of the diocese, had noticed the status of degraded besetting the Cathedral and promoted the reconstruction. Of the old church, dating back to the 11th century, were kept only the Bell Tower, the three portals and the portico of the façade and the crypt; the other parties, in danger, were torn down. the origin of this great Church invites you to visit very accurate, there are many works of art of historical and artistic value. We don't want to take away the taste of surprise so don't anticipate anything, however, we recommend that you should learn to better appreciate the different styles which characterize it. Styles due to numerous reconstructions that the building has undergone over the centuries.

  • Imposing structure in the center of Alba. The Interior is divided into two aisles, it is well maintained. Particularly beautiful frescoes in the side chapels, and those on the vaults.

  • In the Centre of Alba, this red brick Cathedral/duomo. Definitely worth to look within. From within is equal the blue ceiling on. Light on some spots very nice. Murals also beautiful and well maintained. Behind the altar beautiful row of old wooden seats for ' meetings ' to be found in more of these churches.
