Verona's main cathedral featuring style from many eras

Piazza Duomo, 21, 37121 Verona VR, Italy

The Verona Cathedral, also known as the Duomo di Verona is an astounding Romanesque church in the city of Verona, erected after two other churches which stood on the same site were destroyed by an earthquake. The interior of the cathedral features Renaissance art by Veronese artists. The cathedral was renovated several times and this can be seen on the facade. For example, the Gothic windows date to the 14th century and the upper part of the facade displays a Baroque style from the 17th century.

 

The bell tower contains nine bells which are still rung to date. The tower’s construction was begun in the 16th century but was never finished.
