The ceiling was being renovated when we visited, so it was draped with a large net, but this did not obscure one's view. This is a beautiful cathedral, with magnificent mosaics, located in the Old Town of Ascoli Piceno.

The Cathedral of Ascoli Piceno is an unexpected pleasure. It is a magnificent church with a wonderful surprise in the Crypt. The mosaics are absolutely wonderful. Do not miss visiting the Cathedral while in Ascoli Piceno.

This church is big, medieval and feels very peaceful. It has all sorts of surprises from the beautiful mosaics on the ceiling at the back of the church and in the crypt to the extraordinary but simple cross in the side chapel.

Such a beautiful cathedral in the heart of Ascoli Piceno. Visited with my husband and was so engrossed with seeing all of the different parts to the Cathedral I actually managed to lose him!

This historical church in the heart of downtown Ascoli, is dedicated to St. Emidio, the protector of Ascoli Piceno. It houses many beautiful antique artifacts including the crypts in the basement. Not to be missed!

The cathedral is historic and beautiful, but the real stunner is the crypt of St Emidio downstairs. The modern mosaics are marvelous, and the story of St Emidio (the protector against earthquakes) is well portrayed.

Beautiful cathedral located in Piazza Aringo. Legend has it that Ascoli is protected from earthquakes because of this saint. The Earthquakes in Italy a few years back did very little damage to this city, however surrounding towns were not spared. Well worth visiting this cathedral.

We were impressed with the cathedral, wandering aimlessly when we saw a sign for the crypt. Not usually the crypt type we wandered down anyway to get away from a pushy group and we were stunned. While the mosaics are not old, they are no...More
