“Part of our history”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

It's a magnificent cathedral and its a place where science and religion can be worshiped together. It's worth to see the sun crossing the pavement at noon and follow the meridian line.

“Huge !”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Amazing church , construction took over 300 years and had to be curtailed as it was approaching the size of St Peter's in Rome , which of course is against the rules !

“Huge and beautiful”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

One of the largest cathedrals in the world, San Petronio is an example of the Italian modification of gothic architecture. Don't miss facade sculptures by Jacopo della Quercia, one of Michelangelo's precursors.
