  • the unfinished structure. The original design included the construction of an immense Cathedral is a Latin cross, but was stopped after the start of the work, when only one of the arms of the new structure had been completed, what you currently see dates from the second half of the 19th century, when it was built in neoclassical style, incorporating parts of the former Romanesque cathedral, including a large fragment of the mosaic floor of the presbytery. In the nave there is a series of Flemish tapestries, depicting episodes from the life of Solomon. Among the paintings present do not miss those by Bernardino Lanino and the marriage of St Catherine of Gaudenzio Ferrari; very interesting, among the sculptures, a crucified Christ from the 15th century. Absolutely worth visiting.

  • The Cathedral of Novara is undoubtedly the most important Church of the city, rich in history and art, However I do not like very much impressive and massive shapes that distinguish her from the outside, as well as the Interior solemn and grandiose, preferring personally more intimate places of worship.
