This is a very modern circular church. I thought it was out of place in a town with beautiful old buildings. It is probably the worst building in the town. The best thing was the biggest rabbit I have ever seen ran under the building.

If you want to see something offensive to the human eye check this "Bagel" sit on top of the hill overlooking one of the mayor square in la spezia.

The Cathedral of Cristo Re is extremely modern. It is located right in e enter of town by the cruise port. There are a lot of steps to get to the Cathedral. The inside is not what you would expect of an Italian cathedral.

If you happen to be in La Spezia do not waist your time to visit this terrible looking "so called cathedral".......

We passed the cathedral on the bus and thought we would pay a visit as it looked very modern and quite different. So wrong, it appears to have been built on top of a parade of shops and in the middle of a car park....More

Goody, modern architecture for a change! Or maybe not. Such buildings do not really age well, and this particular one missed something that would let you remember it a year or so after.

Was expecting to see something along the lines of Liverpool's Catholic Cathedral. This was not the case! Really disappointing both inside and outside. Very clinical and dismal. Hardly anything to look at inside. I wouldn't recommend a visit.
