Basilica Cattedrale di San Giorgio Martire, Ferrara
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
Basilica Cattedrale di San Giorgio Martire is the seat of the archbishop of Ferrara and the largest church in the city. Located only steps from the Palazzo Comunale and the famous Castello Estense, the cathedral, built in a Romanesque style, dates to the 12th century. The facade is made of white marble, and features scenes from the New Testament as well as numerous sculptures of its characters. The interior was entirely remade in Baroque style after a fire in the 18th century. For a better look at the ceiling painting by Bastianino (inspired by Michelangelo), insert a two-Euro coin into a machine about 50 m (164 ft) from the main entrance on the right: this will cause the apse and the painting to be flooded with light.
