  • In our visit to Aosta, right alongside of the cryptoporticus, visited the Cathedral, dating from around 400 a.d. in which eaves are still visible some frescoes of great value. The only downsides is the neoclassical façade added later that nonetheless contributed to the maintenance of the original medieval frescoes on the façade: in the Lunette above the entrance door there is a fresco of the Annunciation and Nativity, left to right the presentation in the temple. A terracotta group portraying the Apostles and the assumption of Mary. Inside the Cathedral are worth pausing to admire the large floor mosaic depicts Christ holding the Sun and moon, Walnut seats carved with figures of Saints, Apostles and prophets and the crypt, the oldest part of the Church. Inside the Cathedral we then visited the biblioteca capitolare where is collected 5000 documents that allow to reconstruct many aspects of life of the Aosta Valley over a Millennium and the museo del tesoro del Duomo that exposes a significant overview of art valdostana centuries XIII-XVIII, combining the pieces of the rich treasure of the Cathedral some artworks from various parishes of the Valley.

  • A cathedral very well-preserved not to be missed during your visit to Aosta, located next to the criptoportico enjoy necessarily then do not hesitate to go back because it is really a beautiful building from the outside as well as inside.
