It's a beautiful, old church; the inside is well preserved and there are some stunning paintings. Make sure you know what the outside looks like though - if you're thinking 'cathedral' and looking for somewhere like Canterbury or Winchester, you could miss it! (It's quite...More

There is nothing special with this cathedral which is much similar to many others in the small towns arround. However the view from the terrace in front of the Duomo is amazing.
