Having read the first guide which was negative I feel I have to back up the comments made most of the Vercellese about their wonderful basilica. The first time I came to Vercelli, in 1996, I was stunned by its graceful architecture . I love the arcades in the adjoining cloisters and the red brick of the structure.
Although the interior is empty in comparison with British churches, it is possible to appreciate it even more without any distraction. I like the large painted wooden statue of the Madonna standing in an alcove to the right of the altar; she has been there at least since the 17th century.
Every time I go through Vercelli by train, I always look out of the window to have a glimpse of Sant' Andrea. It has to be visited to be really appreciated, however.

Arriving at a new Italian town like Vercelli is always a nice surprise with charming architecture and others to see and enjoy.
The church is a typical example of basilical construction, a harmonic composition of roman and gothic style.
The puritane interrior allows clear study of the architecture. Stone dominates the inside, the outside is gor bricks.
Walking around the chiesa and the parocchia is worth to enjoy and adore also the honourably great ancient trees, such as an appr. 250 years old cedar, neighbouring a 30 metres tall sequoia, magnolias and others.

Beautiful, big massive buildings. Hard to miss it. Easy 5 mins walk from Piazza Cavour. Could spend time there for an hour or more.
