The Cathedral looks astownishing form the outside, inside is as great in space as on the outside. In terms or decoration is a bit poor. No marbles or gold foil nowhere to see... read more

Beautiful church cathedral and undoubtedly the most important of the city, located in the heart of the historical center, and within walking distance from anywhere in town. Beautiful facade and the majestic statues outside the entrance. The interior is also rather interesting and rich in works of art.

Wow! The paintings and architecture make this cathedral a must see. Location is next to the palace/ museum on the main piazza.

Churches in the region are elegant and strong, simple statements. An impossing stone facade makes way for a mainly white interior with a number of interesting paintings.

Reminiscent of a Wedgwood style of pottery decoration, this beautiful cathedral is painted in a refreshing shade of pale green. The statues, paintings and floors are all magnificent works of art. Always look up and make sure you visit the side chapels they are superb.

I loved the place, the whole city of Urbino with its narrow streets and top-of-mountain view is nice :)

As with many things in Urbino, the Duomo looks more impressive from the outside than on the inside. As cathedrals go, this is a bit bare and the chapel in the grotto underneath the church is also a bit dull and you don't feel as if you are getting much for the entry fee.

It has a wide and white Renaissance facade. The interior is majestic. The decorations, statues and paintings in the 2 chapels flanking the choir aisle are really wonderful.

Apart from the splendid painting by Federico Barocci it's a perfect, cold and big church that has nothing to do with the town it's in.

Perhaps it is because the Duomo in Urbino was decorated in a later period than the great cathedrals and churches of Firenze, Siena, Assisi and the like, that we found it more accessible and far more beautiful. I know that tastes differ, and others may disagree entirely with what I am about to say... Here you do not find the... More
