  • Enjoyed this cathedral after having breakfast in the square. Much better early in the morning when it's cool and the crowds are thin.  more »
  • Visited the Basilica on June 20, 2019. But the main composition "Ascension of Our Lady "Assunta" is now under reconstruction, instead of it hangs a poster, and you will not understand it until you come closer.

  • Fantastic church well worth exploring. Amazed at how old it is and how well maintained it is. Voice Tour guide for extra free helps explain some areas in intricate detail.
  • A beautiful and Picturesque place to visit. Very Sareen with beautiful architecture. We spent quite a while walking around it’s a very interesting place to be. I would thoroughly recommend a visit. You can just soak in the atmosphere and feel just her old is this building is. I can’t wait to visit this place again.
