The Cattedrale is worth a 5 min visit. Apart from the main nave, which was a welcome break from the intense heat outside, the side chapels are exquisitely decorated: the Chapel of the Holy Sacrament with a painting by Federico Barocci 16th century depicting The Last Supper and the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception.

We spent much longer inside the church then what we initially had intended. It is a magnificent church with a beautiful color scheme. The tranquility inside is very soothing.

I lived in Urbino while taking a course at the University. It is in the hill country so you will get plenty of exercise walking. The Cathedral and the Ducal Palace are the main elements of the town. The Cathedral is beautiful anf worth the visit. Follow it up with a stroll around the Piazza , an gelato adn then... More

The whole town of Urbino is set on the rolling hills of the Marches. The church is opposite the Dukes Castle. The whole experience was breath taking

This impressive building was re built after a hearthquake on the original church of previous ages. The new structure is clean net neoclassical pure style. But in the side chapels that remain since the original building you have an explosion of a completely different style. You won't believe your eyes. It's terrific! Do not miss the Museo Diocesano that is... More

From such a height, the countryside can't do anything else but make you wonder at the magnificence of the medieval architecture. Despite the history, this is a university town, so the atmosphere is youthful. Great place to sit outside, have a coffee and people watch. being a walled city it is limited in its appeal. Worth a day trip but... More

Overall I thought the front façade is out of place with the surrounding area including the Ducal Palace. I am aware it was rebuilt after an earthquake in the early 1800's and it then took on a new style but I must admit it adds to the wonderful beauty of the skyline but inside is a little impersonal and cold.

It is the most important, but not the nicest church in Urbino. It is very close to the Ducal Palace, it is big and the facade is very nice. The interior is not the exiting.
