Cortona Cathedral, dedicated to the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, was built at the remains of the ancient Roman temple in the 11th century. Little is left of its original Romanesque character, because of the several renovations and refurbishments. Although most of its treasures...More

Enjoy the ride to the top, a town somewhat isolated. The families live here forever. Our local guide’s relative painted the ceiling of the Cathedral. They basically worship St. Margaret most of all. The interior of the Cathedral is a usual beautiful sanctuary.

We dropped by when a wedding was in progress, and it was worth waiting to see the families emerge from the church. The duomo has a subdued, but elegant interior. The view of the valley from the forecourt is beautiful.

This is not about the Duomo, but the town of Cortona. It is very charming and worth a visit. You can wander and enjoy all the views and take in the shops and the restaurants. I had expected it it be a little "Disneyland-like" but...More
