The most important church of Trento. Is very big and the architecture inside is really amazing. The entrance is free but you have to pay to visit the catacumbs.

Frescoes in a few different areas of the church were painted from the 13th century to the 15th century. Just think about that for a second, you get to glimpse into the medieval mind! There is a circular, 13th century window known as the "Wheel of Fortune" in the northern transept. In 1628, the Crucifix Chapel was created. The Council of Trent was held here in the church's presbytery!There is also a wooden statue of 'Our Lady of Sorrow,' I could not find a year on this beautiful statue but it looks like 14th or 15th century. It's just one of those places that is unforgettable. Also under the cathedral there is an early Christian basilica. There's an access from inside the cathedral, I couldn't find it, but maybe you can! I wish I could've seen that section.

Some parts of the church are covered (due to restoration work),however most important sections are visible (Wheel of Fortune , altar...). The crypt is the best section, because explains an important part of curch history not only in Trento. There's also a minimal amount of multimedia support , to better understand how and why the church was built.

The Roman Catholic San Vigilio Cathedral is named after the patron saint of the city of Trento. The current church was built over a pre-existing 6th-century church. The constructed of the new church started in the 13th century in a new Lombard-Romanesque style; however, during the 100 years lasting construction period, the Gothic style became increasingly evident. The façade has a large rose window including The Wheel of Fortune. Notable also are the lions supporting the columns of the narthex on the northern side and the twisting columns in the apsidal area. The interior has a nave and two aisles with a transept. The latter has 14th-century frescoes depicting the legend of Saint Julian and the stone statue of the Madonna degli Annegati. The apse of the right transept houses the relics of the local martyrs Sisinius, Marturius and Alexander who died around 397 AD. In the right aisle is the Crucifix Chapel (1682), with a wooden crucifix at the feet of which were promulgated the issues of the Council of Trent, whose sessions were held in the church's presbytery. Entrance is free, although a (small) donation will always be appreciated.
