This is a very interesting church with lots of history. It stores many of the ancient versions of the banners of the Palio's of each year. It has some wonderful frescos and is a very active church that is a pleasant place to take rest.

Every inch of this cathedral is covered with fresco. It is wall to wall baroque. You enter under the watchful eye of a woman's sculptured head - very curious and I'm not sure if anyone knows who she was. As churches go, this was not...More

Italian towns have lots of lovely old churches and this is no exception. There are lots of old paintings to see in this old cathedral. It is worth a visit while in town.

Walking into churches in Italy is always a surprise, you never know what level of beauty lay behind the small wood door. I briefly pulled off to see Asti while driving through and this church was stunning. There was a lovely scent of incense that...More

The cathedral is a must see in Asti. Once you go inside you will be overloaded with the intense plethora of paintings on the walls and the ceiling. Make sure to take your time looking at them. The indentation with the painting of heaven on...More

As Italy is practically a "living museum", it is easy to find great art even in the smallest towns & churches! The great Gothic cathedral is one of the largest in Piemonte and it's an spectacular master piece that took from the 4th century through...More

Frankly, if you are after the romanesque beauty skip this. It shuts from 12 to 3 and was not worth waiting for. A highly overpainted interior and not much else of beauty. Some nice buildings nearby, and a crypt open on Wednesdays. This was not...More
