  • See a brick façade, in Romanesque style, with a Gothic portal decorated with two lions, and you think: interesting; come in and see a chiesona (not nice) in neoclassical style with three naves which has a strange floor with glass Windows; you walk up and see two layers of mosaic pavements: beautiful! I happily paid €1 because the mosaics were illuminati and, in 7 minutes that I have been granted, I did everything around to see what's left of the floors of the two existing buildings (born in this area in the 4th and 6th century) discovered during the restoration and left in their place. An exciting experience! Beyond the mosaics, the Interior of the Church, completely rebuilt in the early 1900s, not that great: classroom aisles divided by two rows of nine brick pillars, which support the coffered ceiling with a large dome at the intersection of the nave and the transept and an apse decorated with frescoes and stained glass of the 1950 representing the patron saints; 20th century three chapels (Chapel of St. Terentius, which houses the relics of the Saint – Patron Saint of Pesaro-which before were under the high altar of the crucifix Chapel, where it is kept; a valuable wooden crucifix from the 15th century who watches over the remains of Saints and local bishops; the chapel of the Blessed Sacrament with marble remains of the ancient baptistery.); here and there some works of some interest (a small fourteenth-century fresco depicting the Madonna del Popolo, one of the most venerated image of Pesaro; to the left of the presbytery, in the passage to the sacristy, a fresco dating from the late fifteenth century, depicting the Madonna and child, Saint Peter, Saint Jerome, attributed to a workshop of Urbino where he would work the young Raphael). Nothing, however, compared to the mosaics! PS. in the Diocesan Museum located opposite the Cathedral exposes some fragments detached from the mosaic floor dating back to the 6th century: for those who want to see them better!

  • The nineteenth-century makeover doesn't leave particularly impressed, but just lean down to the floor and it turns out the real jewel of this church. The mosaics of the 4th and 6th centuries, seats on two levels under protective glass and witnesses of the existence of two churches one born on the ruins of the previous one, are very beautiful and very well preserved. Definitely worth a visit.

  • beautiful church, but the usual Church, nay ... wait a second ... don't walk on the stained glass Windows on the ground ... see them and you'll see the true Church (or what's left of it) ... beautiful mosaics!
