    Most of the Church attracted me the cloister which is attached to the Church and which I thought was a small masterpiece.

    Most beautiful part of the Cathedral. Not to be missed. If you can go there on Saturday afternoon, because you will also see Ottonian frescoes. All visited by 17.

    You will be captivated by this site unique and valuable. The collegiate church is worth a visit not hurried and, possibly, Wizard. The Church, which has undergone significant changes (such as the disappearance of the Bell Tower), rather than in the collection, all observed in detail: the 15th-century late Renaissance times, stained glass Windows, as well as the wooden stalls of the choir. Cannot fail to attract attention to the mosaic floor with mysterious inscription (in this case) of the famous "magic square" found in many other medieval sites. The crypt is worth a stop. The Romanesque cloister is a unique gem, and each capital deserves better insight to the artistic value and highly symbolic.

  • It is a stage that it cannot lose because it reveals an ancient history and rich aura of little mystery that never hurts! Let's say the structure reveals a very beautiful and meaningful architectural layering ranging between many periods. Important Ottonian frescoes, which is related to the 9th and 10th centuries, the cloister with the capitals were, as not all of them are kept, they tell, who knows something about the middle ages, a beautiful and fascinating history. Don't forget the magnificent façade of the Priory and the old Linden tree. We were talking about mystery: in fact mosaics have been found near the step that contain the famous Sator Rotas-palindrono, just with rotas as first term. Anyway just inquire and about this church and its large priori there is everything.

  • Don't miss the cloister; jewel of the monumental complex of Sant'Orso, accessible through a doorway opened on the right side of the façade. The capitals, sculpted in marble, symbolic of the new and old testament scenes depict admirably, the life of Sant'Orso, characters and fantastic animals or contain different stationery. Are considered among the highest expressions of Romanesque sculpture.
