I'm not religious but we popped in as we had lunch just outside. This building is extraordinary; the artwork (in particular the ceilings) were highly ornate and beautiful. We entered at the end of a service (all are welcome), which was interesting to see.

We called in to look around and found we were in a large complex that included a museum and various sanctuaries with a magnificent main church area. A service was taking place at the time with all welcome

Great experience....stunning building and artwork. The alters and organ are a must to be seen. Take time to take the opportunity for a little quiet and reflection.

I visited the cathedral on 15/08/2016, which is a feast day in Italy. It was touching to see and hear so many people praying and singing together, it gave me so much strength and positive energy.
