Stop in for a little peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle outside, take a moment to gain an appreciation for the religious symbolism through out this cathedral, or just step inside to avoid the heat. It's not the highlight of the area, but...More

Lovely church in the centre of beautiful Castelmola piazza duomo. Open all day until after midnight. Unbelievable !
