  • The surface area of the cryptoporticus insisting on the Cathedral and it was rebuilt in the 11th century, replacing an earlier 4th century Domus Ecclesiae nave, dating to the first spread of Christianity in Valle d'Aosta. The Church was then made up of two separate but interconnected buildings: the Church of St John the Baptist, nave with two low towers, and the actual three-nave Cathedral with two towers. The main nave was completely painted, as evidenced by fragments brought to light by subsequent restorations. From the 12th to the 14th century. the Church was enriched with mosaics and stained glass while in the late 15TH and early 16th century. It was radically transformed, with full demolition of the Church of San Giovanni and the expansion of the Cathedral that was covered with a ribbed Vault. The Romanesque cloister was replaced by a new Gothic cloister and the wooden stalls were set up in the choir of fine workmanship that we admire today. The façade with a portico decorated with frescoes and terracotta sculptures dating back to 1526. In 1758 it installs the new marble altar and in 1848 they build the neoclassical façade and Chapel of the Rosary in neo-Gothic style, to make way for the who, alas!, will be demolished part of the 15th century cloister. Finally, the Cathedral was completely renovated in 2009 on the occasion of the ninth centenary of the death of Saint Anselm of Aosta.

  • The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta is the main Roman Catholic Church of Aosta. Two bell towers with spires, topped by crosses, have a height of over 60 meters and are among the highest buildings in Aosta and the entire province of Valle d'Aosta. Chimes its melodious bells remind residents about the implacable running time. The façade, decorated with numerous statues, figures and frescos, built in the spirit of the Renaissance is strikingly different from the Gothic bell towers. To view the Cathedral inside, you need to know the time of free access-it is limited!
