    The Duomo and the Cathedral do not form a set. It's two separate temples that do not have the same times. The Duomo, or Cathedral, new, is a temple without too much artistic value. The Cathedral, or old cathedral, is a rare circular Church that still retains some remains of the fresco paintings that should decorate it. It's a curious Church which, in case you are in Brescia, not to be missed.

    Appealed to me a lot. Well maintained and the entry is offered a shawl for women/girls who don't wear suitable clothing. Very nice and fantastic!

    One of the few churches in round design. Beautiful definitely worth visiting. Simple and no frescoes, Romanesque church to do a ride even in the dungeons.
