This 12-13th century Cathedral, although not as impressive as the San-Nicola Basilica, is definitely worth a visit. Especially its magnificent crypt happens to be open during your visit (sigh). Its elegant facade, mixing Roman and Gothic styles is matched by the equally mixed and graceful...More

There is quite a lot to see in this Cathedral. The crypt is definitely worth visiting and is beautiful. There are archeological ruins under the church that date back to 1066 that are definitely worth the three euros. Very impressive.

Like many places within the historical centre, this one doesn't disappoint. The place is gorgeous and we got there in the beginning of a service. It was magical.

We popped in to visit and were given a welcome by the Bishop who later gave an address to around 200 young people. The church is quite stately and beautiful.

A bright, clean, white building inside and out. The clerics who run this church are more "with the times" than many others as the lighting and music played for visitors displays modernity and is very welcoming. So many churches are bleak, uninviting and scream being...More

very nice. love the place. The crypt bellow deserves a visit. You can lit a candle if you want. The ceiling is very nice. I did not meet God in the end, he was busy.

I loved the embellishments and the history of the place. We had a Guide with us who made it an informative and enriching visit. Do go

Salve e scusa il ritardo ma per un po' non avevamo internet. Nei giorni feriali la cattedrale è aperta dalle 8.30, consideri però k durante la santa messa è meglio non "fare il turista" e aspettare un attimo. Non perda... More
