Review of Piazza Cattedrale

Piazza Cattedrale
Reviewed 27 October 2016

Piazza Cattedrale is remarkable for both its beauty and for the marvellous row of medieval shops which are constructed along one side of the cathedral, and still function as retail outlets. the square is especially lovely after dark, when it is illuminated by street lights and the ghosts of the past walk again across the cobbles

A classic city square, with bars, ice-cream parlours, and other places to while away an hour or two. I was mesmerised by the large number of people of all ages passing through on foot and on bikes, with or without their dogs. Always seems to be something going on. All set against the backdrop of magnificent Romanesque cathedral which, unusually, still has a row of colonnaded loggia shops built against its south wall.

The large square, especially at night, provides a fascinating view of street life in Ferrara, full of students, strolling or biking by. It is in the center near the castle and surrounded by Italian restaurants and bars.

Ferrara's antiquities are all in the town centre - the Cathedral which is as spectacular as any in the Region, the square, the castle with moat. It is a 1.5R bus ride from the train station - too hot to walk in July.

We arrived in this grand square in the early afternoon so we could not enter the basilica because it was closed. We were still not sorry because the square itself is a sight in itself, very grand, with ample distance where you could photograph the Magnificent Basilica in its entirety. The Basilica itself is a masterpiece of architecture with a very intricately sculptured facade, dating hundreds of years old, the side of the basilica is all along the length of the square with a style of its own with all the arched porticoes at the top with full view from the piazza. The piazza is a centre of activity with all classy shops and restaurants. Will visit again if I be somewhere near.
