  • 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.

  • Sort into the tip between the Po from Ferrara and the Po di Primaro was the first cathedral of Ferrara. Beautiful bell tower and its cloister (the only one of the three cloisters of the convent governed by Olivetani monks 600 years). Don't miss one of the many concerts that are kept inside (very rich) with a magnificent recently restored organ.

  • Sort in ancient times in what the story was the oldest part of the city of Ferrara, when in the 12th century the settlement developed around the so-called "Byzantine castrum," lost its centrality for the construction of the Cathedral also dedicated to St George. The present Church took shape thanks to Biagio Rossetti and other subsequent architects put hand. At the Centre of the façade, vaguely Baroque stands a white bas relief depicting St George Slaying the Dragon, iconography very present and dear to Ferrara. The Interior has three naves, valuable in its decorations, although some masterpieces such as the Polyptych Roverella were dismembered and hosted in other facilities. At the foot of the belfry, pendant, there is the tomb of Cosimo Tura, a great master of the Ferrara School of painting of ' 400.
