From the outside, we expected a modest cathedral. Stepping inside, magnificent! My pictures do not do it justice.

Basilica of San Michele Maggiore, a beautiful Romanesque church which was built in sandstone instead of the typical brick of the area. The chancel also featured a really interesting pavement mosaic representing the twelve months of the year and a labyrinth made during the 12th century.

This is a nice church with a Romanesque facade and simple interior. The Crypt has a number of interesting relics.

If you are at least remotely interested in Romanesque art, it's an absolute must-see. It was open throughout the day in September, also a fiendly volonteer gave me a free personal tour. The chapel - it's magnificent - can be illuminated, 1 euro for 10 minutes.
