Breathtaking interior, spectacular colours, beautifully maintained with delightful chapels. Excellent guide notices in English will help you to understand the history of this magnificent building.

We like our churches old, but don’t expect them to evolve in ways that are recognizable. Here is a church founded in the 11th century. It has been cared for, renovated, and restored for centuries (you can Google the history and details), but what I...More

This cathedral in the main square of beautiful Alba is absolutely worth the visit, a reddish colour outside and a dark but atmospheric inside makes this visit a good add to any visit to the area

Interesting Church in a wonderful piazza in a wonderful town. Alba and all it offers are a delight! Sit in the piazza with a goblet and soak up the atmosphere.

Simply amazed with this beautiful cathedral right in the heart of Alba. Was taken aback by the unique designs on both the interior columns and original floor tiles.

A small, but impressive cathedral right on the beautiful town square. It is well preserved with some very interesting architecture.

One of the larger cathedrals we've seen (we haven't been to the huge cities). The best part was the side glassed in area that felt amazing in meditation. Eliminated the noise of the world...worth it for that alone...

This is a nice old cathedral in the centre of Alba. The interior is very old and dates to the early Christian time. It is nice on the outside as well. Good for a visit while in Alba.
