I loved the original floor mosaics which are in excellent condition. There is also a chapel on the right-hand side of the main altar that is worth looking at. The ceiling painting is incredible, and the walls and altar in that chapel are ornate.

Not as impressive as some of the Italian Duomo scattered throughout this magnificent country - but nevertheless one can only be struck by both the architecture and the historical Mosaics obviously unearthed. The cathedral should be visited when in Taranto and also a good place...More

We have visited sooooo many churches during our years in Europe. Nevertheless, the side back chapel on the right side is a rare experience. The intricate designs with outstandingly colorful marbles is unique and absolutely worthwhile to observe. If you are anywhere near Taranto, be...More

Small but beautiful chapel and the paintings in the Internal Duomo are a beauty. An attraction you can't leave Taranto without visiting.

The cathedral, dating back to the 11th century, is somewhat unassuming from the outside – the exterior is not that remarkable and because it is enclosed by the fairly close-knit buildings of the borgo antico it’s difficult to step back and get an overall impression....More
