The Cathedral of St. Ciriaco was consecrated in the first century and some suppose that the original church was in the form of a Latin cross from the 8th century. This is a fine Romanesque building of stone built in the form of a Greek...More

Our tour guide explained all about Saint Ciriaco, who lays in rest in the cathedral, and it seems it is the genuine remains!

The Cathedral is worth a climb. The panoramic view at the top is stunning. The cathedral itself is not big as expected but still worth visiting.

When you eventually get to the top the views of the harbour are breathtaking, particularly the views of the ship yard where you can look down on all the various stages of construction. The cathedral is also quite impressive although small by Italian standards!
