  • Dedicated to Saint Mary of the assumption, the Cathedral was built in the early 12th. In the portal there are depictions of four prophets. Very beautiful Cathedral with works of the most important exponents of Renaissance cremonese School of painting. The plan of the building is a Latin cross with three naves. To the right of the main altar is the chapel of the Holy Sacrament which dates back to the 1633-34 by the architect Carlo Natali.

  • Magnificent architectural ensemble which materials different mele, bi color with beautiful statues. She worth even if you see the chiesa around this beautiful country. The medieval tower (one of the highest in Italy, 111 m) offer a beautiful panoramaet contrasts with the white and gives relief. Association of the Romanesque and Gothic style. A must see
