A truly amazing structure with a long and storied history. My grandparents were married there in 1899 and I was able to get a copy of their marriage certificate.

This is an old church well hidden in Carrara. Ofcourse marble building. Totally open and no church-official refusing ladies entry when in shorts. New wooden roof.

The façade of the Romanesque/Gothic Carrara cathedral is massive, whereas the rose window is as ethereal as a doily. The beautiful quality of the marble gives it varying shades according to the hour of day: from bluish, to rosy, to sparkling white. Stunning.

The ancient duomo is made with the local marble and the mere history is awesome. This ancient church is located in the central historic district where you will find many original structures.
