“Beautiful building”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

How lovely to see a clearly well looked after ( or recently restored?) cathedral. The piazza is also impressive.

“Fascinating architecture”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

With the Greek columns still visible, this duomo displays a real mix of faith, form and function. It's just as interesting from the outside, if time is short and fighting your way inside doesn't appeal.

“Beautiful Duomo and Piazza”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

After winding through narrow alleys this gorgeous duomo seems to spring out of nowhere, so beautiful and majestic. The history of the many forces that resided in the area and claimed the church (Greek, Roman, Muslim, Christian) was fascinating. The nominal fee negligible.

“Great church”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

So many churches in Italy! This was actually a really cool one because you could see the Greek columns and how they were restructured and rebuilt. The Piazza surrounding is a highlight of the area.

“Really quiet calm spot to meditate.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

It was quiet, except for varying guides telling the tale of the history of this amazing structure and it's layered history....listen to the guides, easier than paying for an audio guide, but be subtle, explains the history while you observe the outline of Greek temple pillars.
