Not to be missed. I enjoyed the thinking at the back of the Bologna Meridian line. A strange scientific exercise in the middle of a Cathedral There is a most interesting chapel containing really impressive paintings of Dante's Inferno.
Really beautiful inside, very ornate decoration with traditional renaissance painting on the high chapel ceiling. The trip down to the crypt is interesting and peaceful. Now begin your journey to the top of the tower. Don't give up, keep going, it's well worth the climb. On reaching the top and grabbing your breath there is a view to admire on... 更多
I love coming to Bologna because it seems more of a true Italian city and less a tourist destination. The past two times I've been here, there have been ceremonies at the Cathedral and I have been able to join the congregation. I like it from a historical and a religious perspective.
After seeing so many beautiful catholic churches, they start to become similar, but every once in a while, there is one that stands out and seems to have a different charm and beauty: this is certainly one of the special ones!
The cathedral doesn't look extraordinary (well, in comparison with other buildings from Bologna). However, once inside, you're overwhelmed.. a massive and beautiful place, with lots of interesting things to see. You can also visit the underground galleries. A must see!
Visited here during a recent business trip. From the outside you don't expect much, but inside the scale and beauty of the cathedral takes your breath away. A great place to visit and recharge your spiritual battery.
Most of the Building dates to the 17th century and the facade remains only partially complete. However, this is a massive church and was destined to be one of the largest until the project was stopped. Don't miss the meridian located in the floor of the church.
