  • Hi I have recently and I visited the Cathedral. It turns out to be placed in top to town about 800 metres above sea level and appears in all its beauty in the small square in front. The Church inside although completely renovated in recent years following the earthquake of 1980. In addition to the valuable frescoes and paintings Please note the beautiful beaded access door made of copper and bronze in relief.
