... Duomo (remember that it is the Cathedral Church) is Santa Maria Assunta. Also built in the 1300's the church like many others has an impressive interior. The styles in this church includes Romanesque, Byzantine, Gothic, Baroque. It is overwhelming to be in this church and my photos do not do it justice.
