  • It was the first church to gather our attention as soon as we arrived in Ferrara. Located outside the walls over the channel. Easily accessible by car and parking facilities. The Church inside is very impressive and well preserved and in the Christmas season takes on a further appeal. Next door is the kiosk with daily local life of the Benedictine monks.

  • Beautiful little church that is located in the oldest district of the city. The historical significance makes it a half a must for visitors.

  • St George outside the walls was the first cathedral of Ferrara, in ancient times the city was very different from today and its center of gravity had shifted far to the South. Over the centuries the core has shifted dramatically and George has come to occupy an increasingly secluded position, so that today seems almost isolated there where begins the southern suburbs. The relatively isolated location, at the bottom of a vast square with a lawn, emphasizes the monumentality of the Church and its mighty Bell cubic blocks on top of each other. The exterior of the Cathedral is Renaissance, having undergone significant changes over the centuries and a redesign of Biagio Rossetti, architect who left his mark on the multiple realities in Ferrara. The Interior, in contrast with the sober solidity of the exterior, has a rich Baroque decoration, an age then back; remarkable, and despite appearances still newer (2013!), is the organ of the counter-façade.
