Nice Cathedral in the middle of Vicenza, overshadowed by all of the other architectural beauty, and I am sure due to it being reconstructed after the WWII bombings. Beautiful marble floors, a wonderful altar and some frescoes adorn this rather sedate cathedral. Very quiet during the week when we visited. Not many people, and very, very quiet.

Despite the fact that UNESCO included the cathedral in the World Heritage List of Mankind, by and large the Anglo-American aviation left only the Gothic facade of this heritage... After the Allied forces failed to break through the Gothic Line in northern Italy in September 1944, Vicenza, along with other cities in northern Italy, was subjected to massive, indiscriminate bombing. One of the most affected in Italy in the autumn of 1944 was the Duomo of Vicenza. Virtually the entire cathedral was destroyed - the nave, the dome designed by Palladio, and all the frescoes of the cathedral were lost. Only the Gothic facade remains, just like the Portuguese cathedral in Macau, now in China. Everything else that we see is the result of a very long reconstruction that lasted from 1945 to 2002! More than half a century! It's spacious and bright inside the cathedral, but there's not much to see. Alas...

Palladio has designed one of the entrance portals and the cupola, but neither is really unique. Church structure appears to be stone, with brick infills. No reinforcement iron rods between the internal bays, which is a plus- Italians tended to feel shaky about their gothic structures, so they additionally added the horizontal rods between arches.
The crypt under the main altar was worth entering, it's lit by natural light. Overall the church is pretty standard, I found the most interesting features to be art deco / cubist frescoes in one of the arches infills towards the altar.

big, rather new, with little historic or artistic value, the Cathedral of Vicenza is not a must. but it's a nice setting around it.

The main church in Vicenza so quite a large building that is resonably pretty inside though it looks nothing special from the outside.

It feels larger on the inside than it looks from the outside and is free to visit, hence worth a trip if in the area. To me though it does not seem as pretty or as interesting as Chiesa di San Lorenzo. Hence if you only have time to look at one of them I would suggest Chiesa di San Lorenzo should be your choice.

Compared with other cathedrals in Northern Italy, this is not very interesting. I think it was destroyed during the Second World War and then restored.

Boasts a crypt and archaeological remains.
