The facade is a wonderful mixture of romanesque and gothic styles, with a distinctive main portal where the columns are supported on the backs of lively animals. The whole south side has shops built into the architecture, and on the upper level the columns wave and intertwine among themselves in wonderfully whimsical ways. A real reflection of the wealth, piety, and sense of humor among the medieval Ferrarese.

The cathedral of Ferrara is an absolute masterpiece, one of the best churches we have in Italy, dating back to the XIIth cantury. Especially the facade is very elegant, with many intricate bas-rilieves and sculptures. On the right side you will see the small artisans' shops added in the XVth century, where today luxury boutiques are hosted. It is on a lrgae square both in front and on the righ hand side, facing other beautiful ancient palaces and full of life at all times of the day. Also the bell tower is an outstanding one. Try not to miss it if you are visiting this city.
