What a delightful and living Church. We enjoyed hearing the Mass and seeing the young people (more than 100) enjoy some Spiritual Community Time. There are a few paintings by Signorelli (famous son of Cortona) behind the Altar. And some nice Crucifix Sculptures...Good luck and Enjoy!

If you like architecture, art and all things surviving for centuries, do visit the Duomo. Cortona is a small town and aside from the amazing views of the countryside and good food, you might be looking for places to visit. The Duomo should on your list ... and the good thing is, you don't have to climb to see it...

If you're in Cortona, you must spend time, not just visit, the Piazza. It allows you to really absorb life in Cortona!

The Duomo is a "working church." My wife and I were fortunate to view a bride and groom leaving the ornate altar as man and wife. No pictures encouraged, but we did sneak a fleshless photo of the happy couple.

Well worth the visit - it is just amazing how intricately and beautifully this cathedral was made. A must see if you are making a visit to Florence, Italy.

Everything about this cathedral is amazing, from the stunning panoramic views outside to the beautiful and tasteful interior. Its location in the center of the fabulous Cortona caps it off. A must for any visitor to the town.

I went here for a wedding .What a great surprise. The walking street to get to the Cathedral was the first lovely surprise . A lovely town and then to enter the Cathedral with all it's history. I seldom immediately say I would like to return soon to the same place as Cortona.But this is one place. The Cathedral alone... More

Cortina is well worth a visit if you're in Tuscany and the Duomo is a must. My wife and I loved it. It's simple and feels like it's purpose is not just attracting tourists! The views from the surrounding walls are stunning. Do go to the museum opposite. It has some great art on display.
