Cattedrale di San Donato Reviews
Bella chiesa nel centro storico di Pinerolo, città di circa 36.000 abitanti ai piedi delle Alpi e allo sbocco della Val Chisone.

The church dates back to just before the year of the thousand but, over the centuries, it has undergone numerous renovations, reconstructions and expansions, so much so that practically nothing remains of the original building. The beautiful Facade in the Lombard Gothic style dates back to the late 1800s. The interior has also been restored to its roots. Single frescoed cylindrical pillars with use of golden colors. When the Diocese of Pinerolo was established around the middle of the 18th century, St. Donato became its cathedral. The hub bell tower that flanks the church is unique. It was an observation tower and was transformed into a bell tower, but never as elevated as it had been designed. I saw her again on Sunday, revisiting the town. It's worth a visit.

It was practically rebuilt in the late 1800s, also due to the damage it had suffered as a result of an earthquake. From the Baroque style that was found at the time it was brought back to the previous Gothic style. Beautiful frescoes are the exterior and interior, but also these mostly from recent times. A bell tower that was also used as a civic tower in the past. Put in a nice context.
