Cathedral of Saint Mary Major

The Cathedral dates from the 10th century. It rises up on a Roman-Daunian sepulchral area ( 4th -3th cent. BC) and on two basilicas, early Christian ( end of 4th cent. BC) and Romanesque ( 10th cent BC). The two different parts, with their own architectural features, blend together perfectly. During the first half of the 14th century, the Romanesque part, with its three apses, was expanded by a Gothic section, a bishop’s throne, a pulpit and three altar, belonging to Cathedral of Canne, prior destroyed. The structure terminates in a polygonal apse. The façade and the large gothic window are elegantly decorated. Freestanding from the Cathedral, the Campanile, built on four levels, serves as entrance for the historic city centre. Located in a focal point, with its parvis overlooking the Palace Santacroce and Via Duomo, the cathedral represents the perfect arriving passage.
