This building is steeped in tradition and history. From the crazy zodiac clock on the tower, to the remnants of WWII that are still evident. Inside awaits an ethereal experience of religion. They have candles available to light for your own prayer...it is a beautiful church inside....many frescos from the 1600's. I loved to hear the bells ringing each day... More

Every small area of the Cattedrale is well worth and needs a few minutes to realize how beautiful it's. It went beyond our expectatives!

Beautiful cathedral! Nice to go to Mass while there. Also climb the clock tower for fantastic views and video about the history of the tower.

Its pinkish-white marble façade is perfectly balanced, although deceptively symmetrical. In fact, there are scores of little asymmetries that contribute to its attractiveness.

A must see if you visit Cremona.It is a Romanesque church with both Gothic and Baroque elements added later.My biggest criticism is that the works of art are not well labeled.

When you visit this cathedral you can see the great past of this wonderful city. Near the cathedral, the Torrazzo is the highest tower belonging to a church in all european countries.

When in Cremona you cannot miss the Cathedral and the Torrazzo tower. To reach the top of the Torrazzo you have to climb 504 steps: challenging but worth it if you cna make it.

I was born in this beautiful town and i lived here until i was 19 where i then "moved" to the UK. Every time i come back here it's a joy. I would like this town to get the importance it deserves on a international level considering our tourist office has limited resources and doesn't seem to be to switch... More
