Smaller than most, it was still a pleasant 20 minutes spent walking around the cathedral. Restoration work was taking place when we visited, so we couldn’t access certain areas. Also it is free to enter.

Well worth a little time to look around, though far less lavish than the catherdrals and churches of mainland Italy. The building itself is not the most attractive from outside but falls into place inside with great sweeping arches and subsidiary altars.

Very nice cathedral, we enjoyed walking around for a few minutes and getting out of the sun. Worth having a look.

This church dates back to 16th century. You will see different styles, both inside and outside. Interior is quite calm with marble altar and few chapels. Nice, colorful dome. We wanted to enter the tower but apparently it was closed with no information on opening...More
