This church is amazing. Dating from the XI century, there's a lot of fine arts inside. Even Tiziano was one of the painters that helped building this church. Along its history, many other artists helped creating the most beautiful church of Treviso. It is definitely worth it visiting.

Having a little free time I walked arounf=d the small city centre of Treviso. This is well wortyh seeing, typical catholic high church with some wonderful paintings, statues and frescos.

The cathedral received a standard 18th century makeover. To really soak up the spirit of the place, you need to descend into the 10th-11th century crypt. Spare, pared down to a minimalist space, the crypt repays a few minutes of silent contemplation away from the hurly-burly above.
