Cathedral of Vicenza

In this chapter we’re talking about an incredible building, the Cathedral of Santa Maria Annunciata or also called the Cathedral of Vicenza.

Cathedral of Vicenza

The Cathedral of  Vicenza or Cathedral of Santa Maria Annunciata, of early Christian origin, is the bishop’s seat and the main place of Catholic worship in the city of Vicenza. The Gothic facade, attributed to Domenico da Venezia, is divided into four sections: the first with five deep arches, the second partition by pilasters, the third smooth and the fourth decorated with five statues and two pinnacles added in 1948.

Thanks to the Venetian Republic and the Bishop Zeno, in 1558, the tambour was made and then the dome designed by the architect Andrea Palladio. The Gothic interior was rebuilt after the last conflict with a single nave, characterized by very low cross vaults in relation to the width of the side chapels. In the vast underground of the cathedral, however, there are remains of a Roman road.
