  • Important and imposing Gothic Cathedral, just below street level, welcomes you with due magnificence, rich in history. A place not to be missed that invokes the power of the city's medieval Pavia.

  • For me it is the most beautiful gem in the city, located in a secluded and quiet square of the historical centre; the façade was covered with stones which have not withstood the ravages of time, but inside still give their best in the capitals of both the upper Church and the crypt; Note the women's galleries, the altar, the Crucifix of Teodote of the 10th century, paintings, frescoes, some of the ' 700; the collection is fascinating, but it is also art history, because it is here that the Lombard Kings were crowned when Pavia was capital of the Kingdom, such as Arduino of Ivrea Berengar I, Berenguer II°; and then Frederick Barbarossa. The Iron Crown, however, is the Treasury of the Cathedral of Monza. I conclude with a praise to the volunteers of the Touring Club which, as rightly recall some signs, worked in a decisive way to make available this site of extraordinary importance.

  • Beautiful church in Romanesque art, the sandstone façade presents presents some statues. The Interior has three naves, on the whole the Church is beautiful in its simplicity, seeing the altar behind wooden choir and co a visit to the crypt under the altar. Rich in history ... when Pavia was the capital of the Lomgobardi Kings were crowned in this church. If you pass by Pavia is definitely worth a visit!
