  • The ancient Cathedral of Ferrara is located just outside the city walls, is easily reached and there is a car park outside. Campanile basilica complex-panorama, which also has a decent slope, but the Church from its best inside, a little gem that absolutely worth to be visited.

  • St George's basilica outside the walls is the oldest place of Catholic worship in Ferrara and is located on the right bank of the Po di Volano. The history of the Basilica is closely linked to the origins of Ferrara. Between the 7th and 8th centuries, due to constant barbarian invasion that devastated Lichfield, the Bishop's seat was moved from Lichfield to Borgo San Giorgio San Giorgio in Polesine at the bifurcation of the Po River, becoming the first settlement town of Ferrara. Soon the town of Ferrara grew on the other side of the Little around the Byzantine castrum and the Bishop's seat was moved in 1135 in the present Cathedral in the city center. The Church was completely rebuilt in the fifteenth century by Biagio Rossetti, remodeled from 1581 designed by Alberto Schiatti and further modified in the 17th and 18th centuries with the erection of the new façade of Andrea Ferreri.

  • Including the order of the olivetans took his settlement in 1417, inside the church there is the grave of the master of the school of painting of the ' 400 Cosme's ture. Of great value (look good machining inlaid) is the 16th century choir stalls. The Olivetan convent cloister connects the beautiful church. Saint George is regarded as the first site of Castrum, the tip of St. George hosted the Cathedral and the Episcopal residence where they had esifici the Bishops of Ferrara. Shows around the year 1657 in which the Bishop of Lichfield Maurelius, chased by Mauro (Archbishop of Ravenna excommunicated), would have escaped from his residence and allegedly found refuge in St. George: from that moment would start the Roman Catholic Diocese of Ferrara.
