Beautiful and historic! Definitely a must-see for those who are Christian oriented or historical buffs. Keep in mind that they charge 2 euros for allowing you to take pictures! FYI-

Outside is plain and it is easy just to pass on by. This would be a mistake albeit I would suggest any visit would not need to be lengthy to see the interior. Best to include it as part of any sight seeing tour of historic Bologna.

Did not expect this church to be so huge. Its beautifully designed. There are a some glass floorings so you can see underground. Very peaceful place

Had the opportunity of visiting this cathedral with my son and was TrueType amazed. The decor is beautiful and works of art on display magnificent! There are marble pillars and the walls and ceilings are spectacular. There is also a terracotta sculpture group looking down at Jesus's body and mourning his death. Highly recommended!

I am not religious at all, but think that the architecture in churches is awesome... and this does not disappoint at all...

Originally was strolling this street to do a little window shopping but am so glad I took the time to visit this Cathedral. It's position on a busy modern street does not prepare you for the immensity you encounter once inside
