“Cryptic Church”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

To my mind the best part of this church is the crypt. It is rather too well lit to give any feeling of mysticism but the layout, statues and ceiling and wall decoration (some of which was being restored) were very attractive. The golden baldacchio in front of the altar is striking but otherwise it is an average duomo.

“a visit you must make while in Ascoli”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

The dome is of typical Ascoli architecture and apart from the main area it has a chapel with representative paintings and an underground crypt with an altar surrounded by mosaics depicting world war II Ascoli

“Beautiful Crivelli polyptych”
Reviewed November 9, 2011

Opens early - 8 am.
Nothing to dislike about the cathedral; the Baptistry, in a separate building, was not open.

“Cattedrale di S. Emidio”
Reviewed September 20, 2008

The Cattedrale di S. Emidio is the backdrop for Piazza Arringo. This travertine structure with bell tower is named for the patron saint of Ascoli Piceno, S. Emidio, their first bishop who was martyred in the 3rd century by the Romans.

This is a great starting point for any visit to Ascoli Piceno.
