The cathedral in Mestre is dedicated to San Lorenzo (Saint Lawrence), a deacon of persecuted Christians in Rome early 200s known for charitable work with the poor until he became a martyr. It is not certain whether he was burned with a grill set on fire. Anyway many miracles have been attributed to him.

The neoclassical style facade of the duomo dating from the 1790s is impressive, though I found the masonry where it is visible without plaster as astounding. Imagine the patience and craftmanship of hundreds of workers who put the building together.

The interior is light and adorned with fine sculptures. I attended mass here, but my Italian was just not good enough to understand the sermon.

The cathedral is awesome i have visited a lot off them but this is a must inside and aa the history is incredible you must have your shoulders covered when entering your bag is check and portable scanners used by army before entering it is a very busy place but doesnt take long to get in a must is to buy the roof pass in advance and if you have any mobility problems make sure u book the lift as it is a lot off stairs but the views are worthwhile

It was absolutely fantastic to be able to experience mass like one of the locals. The church is gorgeous both outside and inside. The confession stalls remind me of the Hollywood movies. The experience was truly great! I loved it!

A peaceful church located right in the center of Mestre, worth visiting if you are in the city and if you have enough time.

I had wanted to attend Santa Messa Sunday morning at 9AM but decided to go to the Saturday Vigil Mass at 7PM just in case as my flight out of VCE was Sunday afternoon and I was worried about possible drama. Nothing happened Sunday except miserable rain but regardless attending Mass Saturday evening at the Duomo di San Lorenzo was very special. The church is very pretty and packed with worshipers. The cathedral was celebrating a special anniversary that weekend. The only thing missing was a recessional song at the end of Mass which I joked about to a parishioner. She got my joke and thought that everyone was too tired to sing. Regardless, it was a special Mass in a pretty church.

Sacred and filled with sweet people worshiping their Lord. A humbling experience.

The frescos are intricate and the chapel possesses an incredibly beautiful crucifix.
