Along the noisy, busy street, quiet respite, beautiful art. We stumbled into this gorgeous church by accident while wandering around on the tourist shop shuffle. A few minutes of peace and quiet contemplation gave us respite to continue our stroll in and around this touristy little town, proud of its art and heritage.

This was a beautiful church. The inlay wood is everywhere and the marble us beautiful. We were lucky enough to have a small concert with a violin and the organ. The sound was outstanding.

We went to this restaurant because of a recommendation from our hotel. The food was sub par and our chicken was rare. Very disappointing and it tasted like it came out of a can.

The Cathedral was built around the 11th century and then rebuilt in the 15th century in Romanesque style. There is some wonderful marble, a beautiful painted ceiling and quite of a lot of marquetry (that is typical of this region). Don't miss the Presepe (on the left as you go in).

The exterior of the building belies the very ornate interior. The artwork whether it is the Diorama of the Nativity or whether it be the marquetry depicting the stations of the cross, it is well worth a bit of time just to have a walk around. There are three stained glass windows and the various bits of marquetry (it's worth... More

Plain, relatively modern exterior hides an ornate interior. The marble and marquetry are almost overwhelming. The lovely Nativity has a wealth of detail, the more you look the more you see. Well worth a visit. Outside there is a charming statue of the late Pope John Paul II.

Many beautiful things to see (for religious people and others) inside this church, which seems unremarkable from the outside. Unfortunately doesn't allow any photography, with flash or otherwise, which is a great shame

The inside of the Cathedral far outshines the exterior, wonderful ceiling frescos and inlaid wood pictures, typical side chapel and side wall icons and a very nice altar area with an overhead statue of Christ on the cross, there is also a glass case with small figurines depicting the nativity in an unusual way at the left hand side when...

Lovely small cathedral. Has some wonderful Marquetry, which seems to be a local speciality. Also has an excellent diorama of the nativity (and village life).

Don't need to have any religious interest to take in wonderful interiors of this site. Wonderful painted ceiling and leaded lights , a great way to spend 20 minutes camera in hand and very central to all the walkable sites of interest
