The Belluno Cathedral

In this chapter we’ll discuss the most important religious buildings in the city, the Cathedral of San Martino also known as the Belluno Cathedral.

The Basilica of San Martino or the Belluno Cathedral, located in Duomo square, was erected in place of an early Christian church in the sixteenth century designed by the Venetian Tullio Lombardo. The simple stone façade has two gothic windows, a rich baroque portal and a central rose window closed by a glass on which are depicted saints.

On the left, the baroque steeple in stone, is 71 meters high and was designed by the architect Filippo Juvara from Messina. The interior, majestic and elegant, is divided into three naves with high arches typical of Gothic churches.  The walls are characterized by remarkable eighteenth-century marble altars while the dome shines airy and full of light.
