A fine, eclectic building
Sep 2019
This is certainly a handsome Duomo with an interesting mix of Gothic and Romanesque features. The lovely brick exterior and huge bell-tower are easily appreciated given the good-sized piazza in front of the building. There are a number of fine features inside; particularly pleasing to us was the consistent decoration on the massive columns. You should note that the church closes at 12.00 and I think only opens again at 3.00 so time your visit accordingly. If you're travelling by car there's a decent-sized carpark on Vittoria Alfieri with a passageway straight through to the cathedral. Definitely well worth a visit.

Asti Cathedral
Feb 2018 • Friends
The church was built in the Gothic style with a tall squared bell tower and the nice southern door decorated in the 15th century. The inside nicely decorated in the 17th and 18th century Baroque style had some impressive pillars and a really interesting 12th century mosaic below the main altar.

Majestic and unique
Oct 2018 • Family
The Cathedral in Asti is the largest gothic church in Piemonte. Build on the ruins of an ancient Roman building (you can still see the mosaic under the altar) it is a typical example of Gotico Piemontese style with red bricks and white sandstone (also the colors of the city). Inside, it was decorated with painting all over the columns which is a bit unusual for a gothic church. Worth visiting!!!

A Gothic church with expressions of Lombard Romanesque style
Sep 2018 • Couples
Consecrated in 1095, the current edifice stands at the site for several earlier churches, probably dating back to the 5th century. The earliest was built on the tomb of St. Secundus of Asti, and part of the original construction survives as the Church of St. John, used today for baptisms. The current 7-story belltower was completed in 1266. The church has three naves, one central, and two lateral ones, as well as side altars opening from the side naves. The soaring ceiling rests on tall, carved and painted columns. Beautiful frescoes decorate the walls and ceiling. Th large painting on top of the main altar depicts the Ascent of the Virgin Mary to heaven. The floor is covered by delicated mosaics representing multiple medieval stories. On the side of the belltower you can still view a solar calendar.

Very baroque
Oct 2018 • Friends
Every inch of this cathedral is covered with fresco. It is wall to wall baroque. You enter under the watchful eye of a woman's sculptured head - very curious and I'm not sure if anyone knows who she was. As churches go, this was not my favorite, it felt sort of gloomy and the art was heavy. But.......if you love churches, this one has a lot going on.

Nice old cathedral
Sep 2017 • Couples
Italian towns have lots of lovely old churches and this is no exception. There are lots of old paintings to see in this old cathedral. It is worth a visit while in town.

Gorgeous
Sep 2017 • Friends
Walking into churches in Italy is always a surprise, you never know what level of beauty lay behind the small wood door. I briefly pulled off to see Asti while driving through and this church was stunning. There was a lovely scent of incense that gave the feeling of walking into a truly holy place.
It doesn't have the over the top Baroque decor of many churches, but it is decorated in subdued frescoes over every centimetre of space. Beautiful paintings in the small chapels lining the walls and a gorgeous dome above the altar. I also appreciated they had real candles for offers instead of those cheesy lights you flip a switch for. Highly recommend a stop in.
