Fodor's Expert Review Duomo

Ferrara Free

The magnificent Gothic cathedral, a few steps from the Castello Estense, has a three-tier facade of slender arches and beautiful sculptures over the central door. Work began in 1135 and took more than 100 years to complete. The interior was completely remodeled in the 17th century. At this writing, the facade is scaffolded and the interior closed as part of a major restoration.
