We loved exploring this beautiful church. The ceilings painted blue, the amazing mosaics (check the cript!), the exterior, everything is beautiful. We especially loved the way the walls were painted in beautiful patterns resembling expensive wall hangings.

Well worth the visit to this magnificent Cathedral. The ceiling with its frescoes is worth the visit alone then there is the crypt with amazing mosaics. Having done some mosaic classes myself I am very interested in the history and beauty of mosaics.

It's an amazing cathedral, one of the best in Italy, I think!! ..the interior looks huge and colorful!!!The crypt was beautiful!! ..on the other hand the square outside of that place is lovely too!! Ascoli is a great city to visit and hanging around for a bit!! The people are also friendly!! so what else?

Beautiful cathedral dominating a lively square with some interesting sculpture and some lively bars. Mosaics inside the cathedral and the Romanesque baptistry worth checking out

Although it may not look that glorious from the outside (when compared to the other Ascoli big Cathedral) the more suprise awaits for one who enters and looks up. Lovely decorated, calmly blue ceiling and frescos. Worth a visit.

A lovely looking Cathedral with some beautiful mosaics and stained glass windows, however reviewers have noted, the crypt is of special interest - with some ancient remains and modern mosaics. Well worth a visit.

After taking in the paintings on the main floor go down to the crypt, they aren't very old but the mosaics in the crypt make the visit worth it.
