  • deserves to be visited for the masterpieces it contains, the Cathedral is always open you can freely visit except during religious services

  • The "more" ancient Christian place of worship in the city and Church "more important". Its foundation probably dates back to the 4th-5th century ad Over the centuries the Church has undergone several surgeries and reconstruction; the current structure is of Baroque and contains within it a large number of artworks, including two 18th-century masterpieces: the shovel by Tiepolo and the main composition of Chandler. Inside is also a monumental crucifix by early ' 600 carved in pinewood and the altar dedicated to the patron saint of Este containing his remains. Worth a visit

  • The Church is not bad, the elliptical shape is certainly original, but the whole thing needs a good restoration, a good cleaning. The altarpiece of the Tiepolo is already being restored, then again when it is put back in its place. There is a marble group of Chandler with the veiled statue of faith, a kind of sculpture that I really like and which arouses my admiration, but this statue is some distance from the observation point and you do not see very well, at least in the details; It is also made from Carrara marble, but even that would need some sprucing up, is too gray. The whole thing could be better exploited. I hit the body of the blessed Beatrice d'Este, the body intact is amazing. We hope that there will be funds to promote also this treasure of our beautiful Italy.
