(500+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
Duomo San Donato is a cathedral featuring historic frescoes, including an especially popular painting of St. Mary Magdalene. You may find the architecture plain compared to other ornate churches, but the simplicity only highlights the interior artwork. Look for the stained-glass windows, which depict different religious stories and figures. Most light inside comes from candles, which adds to the peaceful atmosphere. Duomo San Donato is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Arezzo Edition.

  • Cathedral of Arezzo, really beautiful sandstone. Our Lady of consolation is a Holy image of Mary who, according to Catholic tradition, would have been a miracle in Arezzo in the afternoon of 15 February 1796.

  • A first cathedral of Arezzo arose on the nearby hill of Pionta, on the spot where he was buried and venerated the Holy Martyr Donato, beheaded in 363. In 1203, Pope Innocent III ordered to transfer the Cathedral within the city walls on the site on which it stands today. The Cathedral of Arezzo is still entitled to San Donato and preserves on the main altar a valuable 14th-century marble Tomb dedicated to him and an ark where the body of the Saint is preserved (the head is preserved in the reliquary bust at la pieve). The construction of the Cathedral of Arezzo, which occurred since 1278, has experienced different stages, which ended only in 1511. The façade was built between 1901 and 1914, replacing the previous, unfinished, dating back to the 15th century.
