this is beautiful architecture inside and out. Didn't stay for the mass but was told it was quite emotional - so next time perhaps.

The building has a long history and looks like so. Getting into it, I recognized I was wrong. It is gorgeous and beautiful, especially drawing on the ceiling, "Santa Maria Assunta". Worth to see.

This is a very old and beautiful cathedral. Everything inside is painted or have decoration. Frescos are from the life of Jesús

I don't know the significance of the lions but their presence is a quiet stoic simple entrance piece belying the beauty and ornateness inside. Go inside and sit quietly, admiring the majestic interior.
