The Verona Cathedral

In this chapter we discuss one of the most important religious buildings in the city, the Duomo of Santa Maria Matricolare or the Verona Cathedral.

The Duomo of Santa Maria Matricolare  or the Verona Cathedral is located in Duomo square and is surrounded by beautiful and elegant buildings that seem almost tailor-made. Witness of the passage from the Romanesque style to the Gothic style, today it is the main Catholic place of worship in the city and is also the bishop's seat.

The facade, which bears the signs of various additions, is characterized by a large double arched porch supported by two lions. Its interior, however, has three naves and is rich in frescoes and valuable works such as the Assumption of Titian (1535-1540) which is visible in the first chapel on the left. The 16th century bell tower, still unfinished, designed by the Veronese architect Sanmicheli and finally the Romanesque cloister with the remains of floor mosaics, also belong to the Duomo complex.
