Description

A cathedral with many treasures.

The church was built by the Franciscans in the fifteenth century and upgraded to a cathedral in the eighteenth century. Its simple and austere structure contrasts sharply with the treasures inside.

You’ll have the chance to see a thirteenth-century enamel pyx, a fifteenth-century Nativity in polychrome wood and an exceptional twelfth-century ivory diptych of Byzantine inspiration.

Plus the cathedral’s walls are covered in one of the largest series of trompe-l’œil paintings in Europe.
