Only two others in here when we were. It has a crypt as other rooms as well as the main church. Lovely paintings and kept well together.

Beautiful church, simple and classic with soaring ceilings. Some wonderful baptismals and other more ancient relics have been uncovered in the basement and are well-displayed. It felt like a truly reverent place.

It was nice to stop in and visit. There were people there filming something that looked like a soap opera, it probably would have been nicer to visit if those people hadn't been there.

This is a plain old church with very few statues, paintings, gold, etc. But, that is it's beauty. The construction of the walls is the original block work which is very interesting. You feel like you have gone back to a church five hundred years...More

The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta is an old one, since it was built around 1,100 AD. Austere and simple, it is worth paying a visit if you are around Ventimiglia old town. Ideal for weddings, you might meet people cheering the bride outside the...More

It was one among the many nice surprises the Ligurian city of Ventimiglia offered us. There was already sometime that we were curious about this city and finally we decided to explore it. I believe it's not among the most talked-about Ligurian cities, but it...More

Impressively austere - a little like a Cistercian abbey inside. Beautiful stonework, and an ancient crypt accessible via steep steps down to the Cathedral's foundations. Stunning views over the roof tops and coast of Ventimiglia from a viewpoint at the end of the adjacent car...More

This is a very old cathedral that is worth a visit. All the old cathedrals have beautiful architecture and art, and this is no exception.
