Entering the 12th-century Cathedral, you'll first notice Solsterno's reflective pink-and-white mosaic decorating the portico's arches. Inside, head to your left to see the cross Alberto Sotio painted in 1187 in the 12th-century style depicting Christ still alive. Look up to the apse to find the Stories of the Virgin Filippo Lippi frescoes, which date from the mid-15th century. The church also houses several chapels. In the Chapel of the Holy Icons, you can see the tablet Emperor Frederick Barbarossa donated to the city as a sign of peace in 1185. Other relics include the perfectly preserved letter St. Francis wrote to Brother Leo on goatskin parchment. Inside the fresco-decorated rectory, view the crypt of St. Primianus, the only surviving relic of the eighth-century church that first stood on this spot.
