Large sober church. Nothing special if there are beautiful baptismal funds, perfectly highlighted and enlightened.

GOOD PHOTO OPPORTUNITY - FREE ADMISSION
Sep 2017 • Solo
In stark contrast to the small Sistine Chapel which charges admission and does not allow even non-flash pictures; admission to the Cathedral is free and there is no problem taking pictures of the altar and ceiling frescos.

Interesting Historical Cathedral
Apr 2017 • Friends
We have visited Savona while on a cruise. You can reach the most interesting places by feet. If it's a sunny day wear a hat and start your walk through. This cathedral was built between 1589 and 1605 and houses a remarkable carved wooden chancel which was commissioned by Savona-born Pope Julius II. The cathedral houses also St Valentine's Martyr's relics. If you find some extra time the cloiser is worth a visit.

Pretty much average given Italian competition

Italy is famous for its duomos - and here we have another solid example. Nice exteriors of the entrance area, balanced and not duo-color floors, some nice detailing around the altar - but mind that numerous "details" are just painted. You will not go Savona driven by the idea of visiting the Cattedrale di Nostra Signora Assunta, but you do not want to walk by when you are there.

Solenne e Magnifico
Mar 2016 • Couples
The Assumption Cathedral is the main center of Catholic worship in Savona, located not far from the Sistine Chapel. In 1528, Savona surrendered to the Genoese who built a fort on Priamar hill, demolishing the 9th century cathedral. The present cathedral's construction began in 1584 and was completed in 1605, and most likely designed by Battista Sormano. The Cathedral measures 61 meters by 39 meters in the shape of a Latin cross divided into three naves. A bell tower on the right side was finished in 1929.

After waiting for mass to end, we were able to tour this magnificent edifice and view the artwork including the religious statues.

The whole experience inspired feelings of solemnity. There were many local families mixed in with European tourists enjoying the thrill of lighting candles in front of the altars dedicated to the Virgin Mary and other saints.

This historic Catholic Cathedral is a must see for many reasons. It's a spiritual experience during which you learn about events that have shaped Northern Italian culture and society.

The "new" cathedral of the town
Apr 2016 • Couples
This is the "new" cathedral of the town, the original one was on the fortress on the sea destroyed by the genoa army during the infamous occupation in the 16th century, the new one contains some of the original and most precious pieces of the original, Savona gave the world two popes "Giulio II" and "Sisto IV" (yes, the one famous for the cappella sistine in Rome by Michelangelo) and Hosted pope "Pio VII" during his forced retire in Napoleon becoming the third Holy See with Rome and Avignon, Guides visits to the Pope apartments are organized in the weekends but you have to check in the cathedral because of the limited availability, th pictures speak the themselves, a visit it's a must here.

Sober, spacious, imposing
Apr 2015 • Solo
An old church with a mix of styles and still very much frequented by an active parish. It is set on a nice square, not far from where the old papal palace stands, with a flourished facade and quite imposing interiors
