“Beautiful cathedral, very atmospheric”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

Happened to pass this when a service was being conducted. Very atmospheric and peaceful. On Saturday they encourage tourists to come and see the cathedral and also an organist plays which was lovely.

“Splendid RC Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

Main RC Cathedral of Bologna. Splendid location among the shops, cafes and restaurants along the busiest thoroughfare, Via Indipendenza. But not featured on the usual tourist route and quite easy to miss or overlook. The seat of Bologna's Archbishop, the building has a long and chequered history. We treasure the experience of joining in the Good Friday and Easter Monday Masses, in the bright and spacious interior. Wonderful music from Choir and the brilliant Organist!
