  • The Cathedral appears in an enchanting view from piazza Vecchia. As you enter you find yourself in a mystical place: large and elegant in the nave where stands a wonderful Gothic Christ which contrasts so powerful with the rest of the vestments most delicate and rich in colors. Light filters gently from high Windows create an atmosphere. To see and review to admire the countless treasures. Anna

  • Unlike the Duomo, the Baptistry is bald and essential internally in their architecture, whose decoration is entrusted primarily to external columns of the Lantern.

  • Beautiful monument that usually remains mostly closed. Before this placement on the square was inside the basilica. The current neo-Gothic reconstruction are original statues of the virtues in the external niches and the statue of St. John the Baptist within.
