The Cathedral of Modena is wonderful. I've been in different cathedrals and churches in Italy, but this fascinates me specifically. It is one of the sites that must see and feel its atmosphere of calm and peace.

Breathtaking, you know that places when you see them. Had a good walk around and it just left me speechless. I am having a kind of Stendahl sindrome here. Must see.

The Duomo of Modena is probably not as popular as the other duomos in Italy but it's gorgeous and majestic. When you step inside you can't help but admire each single pillar, painting, vault, capitel and sculpture. Whether you're religious or not this place gives you an immense sense of peace, spirituality and, at the same time, it's like a... More

One of the best cathedrals in Italy and in the world, from 1099. Close by the Ghirlandina Tower and the Piazza Grande to complete the painting

Contains interesting parts, including the bones of a whale (thought to be a dragon in medieval times), releifs of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table made at least 20 years before the writing of the story. Down below... More

Do it. It's beautiful. Lovely pictures, easy to get to and Modena is often overlooked as a city that has great features.
