  • Is located in the historic centre of the city, from the 10th-12th century. d.c., Cathedral of Saints Philip and James, who, as a result of the rebuilding of 1558, took on a Baroque style. The entrance of the 14th century, is enriched by two pink marble columns, recovered from ancient pagan temples. Interesting is the input drum, entirely inlaid with panels that represent episodes from the history of the Church and the organ built in 1901, which has many important carvings. To see the Central ceiling spaces painted on canvas, while in switchboards, formulates the first martyrs Saleem of the 2nd century, and co-patrons of the diocese. Noteworthy are the marble cathedra of bishops, made with parts from the 16th century and the Roman temples and pulpit with elements from the same era, full of a bas-relief depicting the baptism of Jesus, with the underlying shrine, where shining a valuable table of Silvestro Buono. Behind the altar is placed valuable wooden choir full of carvings and inlays, designed by craftsmen. Note that in the first chapel, entering on the right, we have several marble bas-reliefs of a. Pisano, and in the middle there is the baptismal font where he was baptized, in 1544, the poet Torquato Tasso and the last chapel of the nave to the left is an artistic Nativity scene of 1700. In the sacristy, in addition to the paintings of the various successive archbishops in time, one can admire Antiphonaries parchment of the fifteenth century. with thumbnails, 1700 and 1800 sacred vestments, and altar frontals finely embroidered throughout the ages. Finally, we can admire the bell tower which stands astride the ancient decumanus minimum, Byzantine period, with Roman marble of various species, exhibits. The top two floors of the Tower, with tiled clock, were added in 1700.
