  • Nineteenth-century cathedral by very elegant architectural lines. Interesting the crucifix in the first chapel on the right, capped with a copper foil from the waist down, our Lady of Uscetto in the second chapel on the right is the oldest painting of the Church. Beautiful chapel dedicated to the Madonna della Salve, patron of the city with Saint Baudolino. Advice to go to the sacristy to admire the three canvases of Moncalvo.

  • Seen only from outside, is located in a quiet square and closed to cars. The façade is very nice, albeit not too elaborate. The Bell Tower is seen already from the periphery (is the second highest in Italy). In addition to the Cathedral, the square is a statue of Gagliaudo, the hero who would save Alexandria from the siege of Barbarossa, and a bas-relief representing a wolf with two children. In my opinion this is one of the most characteristic corners of the city.

  • The Cathedral is not particularly old, has just over 200 years. In fact to reorganize the city's road network and expand the square, was demolished in about 1800 by Napoleon. The new Cathedral is really impressive and delicate blue frescoes give a nice touch to its interior carefully crafted and well kept.
