Beautiful cathedral
May 2019 • Couples
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.

Wonderful church
May 2019 • Couples
I have visited this church and it's fabulous crypt a number of times over the last fifty years and noticed the slow but consistent restoration work going on. On this visit we were treated to an invitation to join in prayer with Templars in the crypt.

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.

Very Special Duomo
Mar 2019 • Couples
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.

Beautiful Cathedral with amazing crypt
Nov 2018 • Couples
Visited last evening. Was surprised how late the churches stay open here or maybe it was because it was a feast day. In any event, it was lovely in the evening. The side altar is beautiful and the crypt was just totally unexpected. I was going to skip it, but thought "I'm here- may as well". It is a large space with reddish marble columns and amazing mosaics - dedicated to St. Emidio. Definitely worth a visit.

Beautiful Cathedral, not to be missed
Aug 2018 • Couples
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!

Church of St. Emidio in Ascoli Piceno
Aug 2018 • Family
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!

Go downstairs
May 2018 • Couples
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.

Patron Saint of Earthquakes
Nov 2017
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.

Don't miss the crypt
Feb 2018 • Couples
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 less beautiful and it was a great opportunity to examine a mosaic closely. We saw this before we went to Ravenna and it helped me to understand the work involved in making all of their beautiful mosaic ceilings. Don't bypass the crypt.
