La Cattedrale di Pesaro fu eretta sulle fondamenta di un edificio di epoca romana. La costruzione romanica risale all'XII secolo.A quell'epoca risalgono infatti i due leoni stilofori posti i lati del ... read more »Pesaro Cathedral was built on the foundations of a Roman-era building. The Romanesque building dates back to the 12th century. At that time date back the two lions placed sides of the portal; but in the following century it underwent a radical restructuring. The Romanesque-Gothic terracotta façade, it presents the typical elements of the basilicas with three naves. The main building is emphasized by pilasters partially covered in marble, two of which hold the portal with a pointed arch. Over this runs the full width of the building a theory of small arches intertwined, reproposed in a gable cornice. A rose window blind, chromatically stressed, is protected by an arch slightly jutting, drawn from a series of building blocks. The Interior redone in the late 19th and early 20th centuries has three naves divided by pillars, with a dome over the transept. In the first altar on the right is a painting by Antonio Cimatori pupil of Barocci, depicting St Jerome. Right after you open the octagonal Chapel of San Terenzio, first bishop and Patron Saint of Pesaro. Beyond the body of the Saint, the chapel also houses the remains of other martyrs. The second altar is dedicated to Saint Francis of Paola with a 17th-century painting by an unknown artist. On the same side of the transept, the altar is a painting by Joseph Gonnella 19th century depicting Christ appeared. Down the aisle next to the altar is the chapel of the crucifix with a Christ on the cross by the 15th-century Venetian school. The fresco in the apse depicts the assumption of the Virgin and is even this the work of a skirt, while the underlying five large Windows represent the figures of Saints Pandey and date back to 1950 opera by Alexander G. In the left transept altar you can admire a painting by Giacomo Pandolfi of the 17th century. But the highlight of this church are the mosaics. Under the current traffic there are two overlapping mosaic floors, the most recent of which is partially visible through some "Windows" open on the floor. The double mosaic floor is perfectly preserved and dates from the first to the sixth century a.d. and the deepest in eighty centimetres from earlier than the fourth century a.d. Unfortunately to admire these beautiful mosaics pay offering, but I guarantee you it's worth it.show original
La chiesa in sé, frutto di un rifacimento ottocentesco, non è niente di speciale. Ciò che la rende unica sono i celebri mosaici paleocristiani ritrovati sotto il pavimento.

What makes it unique are the famous early Christian mosaics discovered under the floor. To see them you need to enlighten them by inserting a 1 euro coin in the breakfast coffee. The light stays on for seven minutes, so you have to then scapicollarvi to see them. Anyway, I gave a low score because the sacristan moved away from inside the church a young rom who was not doing anything wrong.show original
