Every inch of this cathedral is covered with fresco. It is wall to wall baroque. You enter under the watchful eye of a woman's sculptured head - very curious and I'm not sure if anyone knows who she was. As churches go, this was not...More

The painting of the walls and ceilings is quite incredible, it is like the interior of the whole building is a canvas.

The interior of Asti's cathedral is breathtaking. Every inch of every surface is tastefully frescoed,in soft colours which soothe the eye and make the spirits soar.
