This lovely Cathederal is right next door to the Cryptoporticus ruins/museum set in a lovely,sunny when were were there, square. We had to wait for it to open after lunch at 3pm but it is so pretty all aroun and surrounded by mountains we did not mind!

As you enter through the West door your first impression is that this is a very austere almost stark place of worship. Then you catch a glimpse of colour off to the right. It is a lovely mural in a side chapel. This is a feature of most of the chapels.One of the north chapels has a lovely window.

The Stations of the Cross are large paintings. Interestingly the titles are in French which shows the strong influence of the French language in the town.

There are wonderful 12th century frescoes in the roof space, but they are not open to the public most of the time. Also Roman remains in the basement.

So many reviewers must not have taken the tour, or they'd have mentioned it. The tour is fantastic. It includes viewing the church treasures (some from 400 AD and then climbing into the attic to view frescoes that were painted in 1050AD. These are some of the oldest Frescoes known as most others have been painted over several times. The tour is free during the annual Cultural Week (around the 3rd week in September).

The juxtaposition of the old cathedral with more recent additions is fascinating. Well worth a visit

I love visiting churches and this one was unique because of the design of its front façade. It was also lovely inside and there seemed to be no restriction against flash photography.

This a small cathedral, however, inside, there's a lot of precious items, paints, relics, altars, and so on.
The ceiling is beautifully paint as a truly Italian church.

Aosta is truly remarkable! Overall, it amazed me how well antiquity combines with modern day life. The Cathedral has such a long history. Its origins lie in early Christianity, with Romanesque and Gothic additions over time. I love the west end which is still adorned with original colours; the stained glass windows are magnificent; and the two bell towers seem to bear the weight of its long history. Next time I visit I want to see the Museum which is open in warmer weather. Today it is still a pilgrim Church and is place to visit during the Papal decree of the Year of Mercy.

After visiting the underground area we waltzed into the church for a quick photo opportunity. We stayed long enough to soak in some of its beauty and ended up finding there old and original underground chapel room. It is located near the back of the church interior walking on the left side.

I'm sure I could rate this more highly had we been able to go in, but having arrived at 1.30 we found it was shut for lunch (like most other places) from 12 -3. They are missing out on lots of tourism here. We had to leave Aosta by 3 to get back to Geneva. Really disappointed.
