I have been there some times. Every time it surprises me because it's so huge (for a small town, I mean) and so dark. It is quite different from most Italian churches. It is romanesque style, and you can see it in every corner. Inside,...More

The Duomo is interesting but, as of writing, in the process of being renovated inside. Definitely worth a visit.

The unusually shaped tower top and stonework grab your attention before you even set foot inside. The frescoes and high altar really make it a special place. Despite the ongoing construction work, this is a really beautiful cathedral. Try one of the 2 euro machines...More

This is romanesque-baroque church, interesting (if spartan) both inside and outside. Part of the gorgeous Piazza Duomo.

It's a beautiful romanesque-baroque cathedral, full of history, precious frescos, a monumental altar. Free guided-tours are available and very interesting. I loved it very much.
