Asti's gothic cathedral is dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Gotthard. It is one of the largest churches in Piedmont. Very grand interiors, and it was buzzing with activity - seemed like a special May weekend festival in Asti when we visited.

This is certainly a handsome Duomo with an interesting mix of Gothic and Romanesque features. The lovely brick exterior and huge bell-tower are easily appreciated given the good-sized piazza in front of the building. There are a number of fine features inside; particularly pleasing to us was the consistent decoration on the massive columns. You should note that the church closes at 12.00 and I think only opens again at 3.00 so time your visit accordingly. If you're travelling by car there's a decent-sized carpark on Vittoria Alfieri with a passageway straight through to the cathedral. Definitely well worth a visit.

Every inch of this cathedral is covered with fresco. It is wall to wall baroque. You enter under the watchful eye of a woman's sculptured head - very curious and I'm not sure if anyone knows who she was. As churches go, this was not my favorite, it felt sort of gloomy and the art was heavy. But.......if you love churches, this one has a lot going on.

We visited on a Sunday, not the best idea possibly as there was a full service in progress and we couldn't go in.

We did sit in the piazza outside the cathedral for a while and listen to the music coming from inside and try to work out how the sundial on the wall actually worked.

I agree with the previous review, Asti is not the best place to visit, we were hugely disappointed with it. Alba is much better !

The Cathedral in Asti is the largest gothic church in Piemonte. Build on the ruins of an ancient Roman building (you can still see the mosaic under the altar) it is a typical example of Gotico Piemontese style with red bricks and white sandstone (also the colors of the city). Inside, it was decorated with painting all over the columns which is a bit unusual for a gothic church. Worth visiting!!!

Consecrated in 1095, the current edifice stands at the site for several earlier churches, probably dating back to the 5th century. The earliest was built on the tomb of St. Secundus of Asti, and part of the original construction survives as the Church of St. John, used today for baptisms. The current 7-story belltower was completed in 1266. The church has three naves, one central, and two lateral ones, as well as side altars opening from the side naves. The soaring ceiling rests on tall, carved and painted columns. Beautiful frescoes decorate the walls and ceiling. Th large painting on top of the main altar depicts the Ascent of the Virgin Mary to heaven. The floor is covered by delicated mosaics representing multiple medieval stories. On the side of the belltower you can still view a solar calendar.

This is the centre piece of this historic city. An amazing cathedral with a museum next to it that has been restored so well. In fact the museum is the first place to visit and then the cathedral.

This is a very interesting church with lots of history. It stores many of the ancient versions of the banners of the Palio's of each year. It has some wonderful frescos and is a very active church that is a pleasant place to take rest.
