  • I have to admit, I've been many times but I've never been able to enter it and I always admired from the outside, but I have to say that a great glance for the visitor who goes Isernia to admire this pharaonic Cathedral.

  • Is the most important Church of the city, the Cathedral of the Diocese of Isernia-Venafro is dedicated to St Peter and is located in piazza Andrea d'Isernia. The current building stands on an ancient pagan temple italico 3rd century BC which remained intact the entire podium from which it is possible to reconstruct its form. The temple was a capitolium, that is a temple dedicated to the Capitoline triad which had the entrance on the opposite side to the current location. The Interior appears divided into three aisles with pillars decorated with polychrome marble Corinthian pilasters.

  • The Cathedral of Isernia is currently a nineteenth-century Church fine but not particularly original: originally stood on the site of Roman temples (but the archaeological area now is difficult to visit), then starting at the Christian era were built gradually several damaged churches and redone by earthquakes and by the terrible Allied bombardment of 1943. If the Church overall not a must, it is interesting and original the mighty steeple which literally crosses the main street of the city, with an interesting architectural solution.
