Fodor's Review

Dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin, the Duomo is an object lesson in Italian Gothic architecture. Built in the early 14th century, it is decorated so as to emphasize geometry and verticality: pointed arches and narrow vaults are completely covered with frescoes that help the eye to soar upward. The porch on the south side of the cathedral facing the square was built in 1470; it represents the Gothic style at its most florid and excessive.
