Large sober church. Nothing special if there are beautiful baptismal funds, perfectly highlighted and enlightened.

In stark contrast to the small Sistine Chapel which charges admission and does not allow even non-flash pictures; admission to the Cathedral is free and there is no problem taking pictures of the altar and ceiling frescos.

Italy is famous for its duomos - and here we have another solid example. Nice exteriors of the entrance area, balanced and not duo-color floors, some nice detailing around the altar - but mind that numerous "details" are just painted. You will not go Savona...More

An old church with a mix of styles and still very much frequented by an active parish. It is set on a nice square, not far from where the old papal palace stands, with a flourished facade and quite imposing interiors
