  • San Pedro Metropolitan Cathedral is the Cathedral of Bologna, situated in the historic centre of the city. Its baroque interior is complemented with an exterior of stunning red color made of brick covered with plaster in rose tone and marble decorations. Among the works of art in the Cathedral is the Group of terracotta sculptures called the lamentation for the dead Christ of Alfonso Lombardi

  • When the Madonna di San Luca (which seems to be derived from the same table to the Polish one of Czestochova, forgive me but I don't know Polish) descends from the colle della Guardia, where there is the church dedicated to her. They come to take refuge in our cathedral which, apparently, is much more secluded from the Basilica di San Petronio because it is not on the main square in Bologna but has the main entrance from Via dell'indipendenza and another even more away from via Altabella, you enter and behold the miracle!! A magnificent stateliness that way though security.. exactly what he's looking for Mother Mary when we are to find in the city, you can not come to Bologna and don't visit it!

  • In addition to the beauty of the Basilica, an archaeologist led us under l to crypt showing an exceptional recovery work. The view from the belfry and explanations, something to stand out and not miss
