This is a jewel not to be missed: the Cathedral has some exquisite frescoes made in the 1450s which reflect renaissance ideals mixed with life in Abruzzo at that time. Look closely at the pictures and you will see what clothes were worn in Atri at the time as well as what was typical to do or see at a wedding. Some inscriptions are in dialect which again reflected the area.

The holy door is ceremoniously opened during jubilee years designated by the Pope, if you pass through it all the sins will be forgiven, there are 23 holy doors in Abruzzo!
The frescoes are probably made by some of Giotto's apprentice, they are truly beautiful with vivid colours.

The Duomo of Santa Maria Assunta in Atri is an interesting cathedral dating from the 13th. century but built on top of Greek/Etruscan/Roman constructions perhaps dating as far back as the 4th. century BCE. The wealth and importance of the city reached a pinnacle in the 15th-16th centuries under the rule of the Aquaviva family and the Duomo became an important site for pilgrims. The cathedral museum is a modern, climate controlled facility housing the treasures of the cathedral and covering everything from carvings, books, sculpture, relics of the saints, silver, and vestments. We have never seen such an amazing collection in what is a relatively small church. The Museum entrance fee also covers a visit to the Roman water storage cistern, another architectural marvel.

The Cathedral / Dome is not of the same size & grandeur as other Italian cathedrals, but it is a very charming one. We especially liked the colourful frescos that you can find throughout the cathedral. But don't forget to look outside too - the bell tower is really nice although rather difficult to see - I suggest to go to the side entrance and have a look from the via Roma.

Any time we get near Atri, we stop by and visit a few places that grew deeply into our hearts. This amazing cathedral is surely one of them. It may not look gorgeous or full of splendor at first sight, however the bigger the surprise how uplifting and relaxing and amazing this dome is when one enters. Everyone will find something to love - from old roman mosaic to unbelievably colorful frescos. Surely worth seeing.

An interesting cathedral with frescos on most of the walls, glass sections of the floor showing original mosaics of a former building. There is a museum you can visit for €5, which allows you to see the religious reliques along with ceramics and gives you access to the cloistered courtyard and cistern under the building.A beautiful strucure in itself.The day we went there was a modern art exhibition. Not my taste and it unfortunately distracted from the beauty of the structure.
Atri is a lovely small town.Take time to wander the streets, have coffee on the main square (we had a delicious frappe (milkshake) and go to the end of the mainstreet to the panoramic balcony and what a panorama right down to the sea. A village definately worth the visit and if you like liquorice this is definately the place for you as they have liquorice everything!
