Just a stone's throw from the main square is the cathedral. Impressive and filled with works by local artists. It has a quaint piazza in front of it with a modern statue of Santa Margherita and a view of the valley to die for. Also, don't skip the museum across the way-better than the church.

The small square in front of this Duomo is the main reason why you should visit this place. Spectacular views on the Chiana valley. The Duomo itself is OK, but nothing really special.

The best art seem to have been transported across the square to the Diocese museum as this cathedral has been rebuilt several times. So if you are there, it is certainly worth a look but do not miss the museum facing the cathedral!

This is a rich piece of Corton's history. It is a must see for anyone visit in the town of Cortona. Parking was not easy, but well worth the effort to locate a parking spot, even if you have to walk a short distance.

The piazzas of Cortona are magical in their vivid life, as too are its denizens, The Duomo represents another aspect of its people's panoramic character. It's hard to understand how a few can speak demeaningly of such a wonder" "Skip it, This or that is so much better". Better as if we can prove that chocolate or vanilla is inherently... More

What a delightful and living Church. We enjoyed hearing the Mass and seeing the young people (more than 100) enjoy some Spiritual Community Time. There are a few paintings by Signorelli (famous son of Cortona) behind the Altar. And some nice Crucifix Sculptures...Good luck and Enjoy!

If you like architecture, art and all things surviving for centuries, do visit the Duomo. Cortona is a small town and aside from the amazing views of the countryside and good food, you might be looking for places to visit. The Duomo should on your list ... and the good thing is, you don't have to climb to see it...

If you're in Cortona, you must spend time, not just visit, the Piazza. It allows you to really absorb life in Cortona!
