Great cathedral

It is the most important, but not the nicest church in Urbino. It is very close to the Ducal Palace, it is big and the facade is very nice. The interior is not the exiting.

I lived in Urbino while taking a course at the University. It is in the hill country so you will get plenty of exercise walking. The Cathedral and the Ducal Palace are the main elements of the town.

The whole town of Urbino is set on the rolling hills of the Marches. The church is opposite the Dukes Castle. The whole experience was breath taking

This impressive building was re built after a hearthquake on the original church of previous ages. The new structure is clean net neoclassical pure style. But in the side chapels that remain since the original building you have an explosion of a completely different style. You won't believe your eyes. It's terrific! Do not miss the Museo Diocesano that is... More

From such a height, the countryside can't do anything else but make you wonder at the magnificence of the medieval architecture. Despite the history, this is a university town, so the atmosphere is youthful. Great place to sit outside, have a coffee and people watch. being a walled city it is limited in its appeal. Worth a day trip but... More

Overall I thought the front façade is out of place with the surrounding area including the Ducal Palace. I am aware it was rebuilt after an earthquake in the early 1800's and it then took on a new style but I must admit it adds to the wonderful beauty of the skyline but inside is a little impersonal and cold.

... but the inside is beautiful in its classical way and the two little chapels at the back are like a change in scene.

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.

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. Plain walls.
