The cathedral is located on top of a hill overlooking the port of Ancona. The building itself is Romanesque with a beautiful main entrance but the interior is not special. When going by foot, same implies rather steep walkways and multiple steps. There is parking facility next to the cathedral, be it limited.

This is a beautiful cathedrale. It's on top of the hills of ancona so you need to climb a bit but that's really worth it while next to the cathedrale you also have a beautiful view over the city.

Great view over the city! Interior is nothing special but the exterior and the location make up for that!

One of the best examples of a beautifully-preserved Romanesque cathedral to be found in Le Marche, sitting on a high promontory overlooking Ancona port. The stone and carving of the main door is particularly noteworthy and the interior proportions with the Venetian vaulted ceilins are exquisite.

Beautiful basilica, surprised and impressed that some of the structure, mosaics & perimeter dates back to 12th Century. Very challenging to get to, but worth the high-incline walk to the top of the hill. It's the highest structure in Ancona. Notice the set of Red Lions at the portal.

We were fortunate to be here for a Thursday before Easter service and it was great. As you can tell we are not Catholic But it was wonderful.

If you come to Ancona don't miss this beautiful Cathedral. The walk up the Guasco hill is very scenic and worth the effort.

A great Romanic Cathedral built on an ancient greek temple. You can visit the crypt and the view from up there is great

We found this an interesting cathedral, not so ornate as many but with much history. Its position is ideal for excellent views and it is on the town trail which guides one to see the sights.
