The visitor is truck by its scale - the height of its central dome draws one's eyes upward! But it still retains a sense of reverence and respect. The Palladio style pillars and plasterwork are impressive. I liked the huge holy water fronts inside the...More

Biggest church in Brescia. Right in the middle of the piazza where everyone hangs out, especially at night. Beside the older duomo or church.

This cathedral has the third largest dom in Italy. But inside is nothing interesting or breathtaking. The Duomo Vecchio (Old cathedral) is more interesting.

The singular feature of this cathedral must surely be the monument to Pope Paul VI, located in Brescia because that was where the pope-to-be was born in 1897. Standing dominantly on the left-hand side of the cathedral, the monument depicts the Pope in the act...More

This church is not amazing, the usual beautiful church that every city has. But if you are in Brescia, you should try visiting it, it is ok.

I have never seen a duomo with so little decoration inside, and I am still unsure why this is the case with the Duomo of Brescia. Duomos are almost always free and somewhat interesting, so I do recommend a visit, especially if you can see...More

It's the biggest church in this beautiful city. Incredible that construction was begun in 1604 and was completed in 1825. It was closed unfortunatly when I visited it.
