Visited last evening. Was surprised how late the churches stay open here or maybe it was because it was a feast day. In any event, it was lovely in the evening. The side altar is beautiful and the crypt was just totally unexpected. I was...More

Such a beautiful cathedral in the heart of Ascoli Piceno. Visited with my husband and was so engrossed with seeing all of the different parts to the Cathedral I actually managed to lose him!

This historical church in the heart of downtown Ascoli, is dedicated to St. Emidio, the protector of Ascoli Piceno. It houses many beautiful antique artifacts including the crypts in the basement. Not to be missed!

The cathedral is historic and beautiful, but the real stunner is the crypt of St Emidio downstairs. The modern mosaics are marvelous, and the story of St Emidio (the protector against earthquakes) is well portrayed.

Beautiful cathedral located in Piazza Aringo. Legend has it that Ascoli is protected from earthquakes because of this saint. The Earthquakes in Italy a few years back did very little damage to this city, however surrounding towns were not spared. Well worth visiting this cathedral.

The cathedral is undergoing some restoration and they have cloth draped over the ceiling. It's a nice peaceful place not overrun by tourists despite its central location.

For me, it was a pilgrimage to my grandparent's church before leaving Italy, but it was as magnificent a church as I'd seen in the country.
