This place is absolutely beautiful! You can walk around the duomo and from every side the view is just as beautiful! Extra tip: visit the shop Coins and go to the 3rd floor. There is a cafe with a beautiful view over the duomo!

Also called " La Rotonda " because of its round layout, is a Romanesque co-Cathedral stand next to the New Cathedral. It is a beatiful Romanesque round church built in the 11th century. You can see the level of the oldest square of the city if you look beside the church. Many level can be seen upon entering the Cathedral togheter with a heatvenly backgrouund music and a pleasant smell of incense. At the entrance you can see the red stone sarcophagus of Berardo Maggi (1245-1308) bishop and first lord of the city The circular core of the church is far below the entry point and gives you the immense size of the circular part. Many finds from the old early Cristian Basilica are visible in some display cases as the ancient crypta even further down, it is the oldest Christian find in Brescia beacuse is dated back in the 6th century. Going up on the right side you can see the chapel of Guardian Angel with a beatiful painting made in 17th century by Antonio Gandino. Behind the circular nucleus there are the transpet two beatiful chapels and the main altar all full of frescoes and beatiful paintings made between 15th and 17th century.

There's an old cathedral and a new one. The new cathedral is really beautiful. I'm sorry you weren't allowed to take pictures. The new cathedral had a Christmas nativity exhibition. The cathedrals are closed between 12.00 and 14.30!
