It doesn't look spectacular on the outside, and on the inside it's unusually plain for an Italian cathedral. However, the real attraction is the Baptistry (Battistero del Duomo) next door.

Don´t be fooled by its austere façade, this interesting temple deserves a visit. It´s not the church I liked most in my trip to Italy, but it´s outstanding anyway. I would point out that it´s quite original as there are some contemporary sculptures in the...More

the Cattedrale is very impressive and very big, unfortunately it is often closed, so you cannot see it inside

Loved our visit here and to the Baptistry next door. Plainer than St Antony's Basilica but beautiful nevertheless. Loved the modern crucifix, lectern and other works by the same sculptor. The stained glass windows in the crypt were with a look. Very peaceful!

Austere compared to St Anthony, but still deserves a quick visit to see the church and Baptistery. Most of what you see now is from the mid-16th century. It has symmetrical aisles and domes, and an interesting floor. It is the resting place of several...More

Don't miss this, the Battistero is a building adjacent to the cathedral. 3euros only, no queue. Amazing frescos

Obviously not San Antonio, but there is a stately elegance to the Duomo. It's interesting how they have updated and added modern art to the church - a sign that the Church is still alive. Stop by to see if you like what they did....More
