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.

Its red brick Gothic facade dominates the piazza. It has evolved over the centuries, but it is still a very nice church with a 13th century bell tower. Inside, note the craftsmanship in the wooden choir from 1512, and the organ built in 1871. We...More

In prime position in the Piazza Risorgimento, this cathedral has a stunning interior, with pillars that soar heavenwards towards a glorious star-spangled azure blue ceiling. Really, very lovely
