Initially we confused the Duomo with the stunning Santa Maria Maggiore Basilica. The Duomo is rather overshadowed by the adjacent Basilica but is certainly worthy of a visit. Once inside it is quite beautiful and free to enter.

These two Saints took turns as nominee, from no later than 9th century a first Cathedral was built to Saint Alexander, in 1561 Venetian demolished it for the Cathedral of Saint Vincent, finally in 1697 the Pope Innocent XI turned back the Cathedral to Sain Alexander.
The facade is attached to Palace of Reason, with neoclassical shape and beautiful portico on two levels surmounted by several statues.
Internal with Latin Cross ground plan with a single nave.
Many wonderful paintings are visible inside the chapels and at the main altar , Tiepolo , Andrea Previtali, Giovan Battista Moroni, Giovanni Cariani, Sebastiano Ricci and Carlo Innocenzo Carloni.
The Baptistery in front the Cathedral constructed in 1340 by Giovanni da Campione for the Basilica of Saint Maria Maggiore .
Octagonal plant .
Inside many bas-reliefs of episodes of life of Jesus

Very beautiful cathedral. I would rank it higher than the "Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore".

They are right next to each other and should visit both.

A remarkable Cathedral with an exquisite work of art round every corner. Do not forget to look up up at the truly amazing dome. If you like churches this is a must for you if you appreciate great art this is a must for you.

One of the most beautifull building I ever seen. Pretty large, but armonious, highly decorated with great taste. A real piece of history, architecture and art.

It is very large magnificent cathedral, which was built more recently and maybe not as distinctive as other churches we visited. It was amazing building and worth visiting.

Situated to the left of the Basilica, entering the cathedral and duomo is the easily accessible when walking around the square.

The interior is beautiful and has stunning frescoed ceilings and cappelas.

Free leaflets are available as you enter which give information on the different areas inside.
