Essential for appreciating Todi. Archeology and architecture come into play here.

It was a second journey from Orvieto to Assisi during an extended tour of this central part of Italy when I decided to stop at Todi to see more of the wonderful churches and other places that I had discovered during my first visit there. This cathedral was well known by specialists in this form of church architecture and design.... More

Architecturally and archaeologically interesting, particularly the very early mediaeval crypt (access down internal stairs and from the main crypt door at the back on the right). The carvings on the exterior of the apsidal crypt should not be missed, with jolly, beaking animal faces and incredible technical skill demonstrated in the detail and beautiful, assured construction. (See it at the... More

This cathedral is a truly peaceful place of worship, and has some lovely statues and works of art. There is no entry fee. It is situated at one end of the Piazza del Populo, and you get a good view of the square from the top of the steps outside.

It was built between the 12th and 15th centuries. It stands at the top of a steep flight of stairs. It has a very beautiful rose window at first glance but then you see that in each petal, all 36 of them, is the face of a cherub and they really are kind of eerie. The choir stalls are lovely...

We walked about the beautiful square. At one end is the cathedral which looks impressive especially with its wide flight of stairs. There were many beautiful old buildings and the cathedral stood out. One gets spoiled in Umbria with so many impressive eligious edifices. This one did not seem much different that others we had seen in a week in... More

not the pomp and chic of so many many other magnificent cathedrals in Umbria, but a wonderfully balanced, intimate, sober - but not austere- Roman church.

There is a large steep parvise leading up to the rather small Cathedral, making it look more imposing. The inside is rather bare, except for the magnificent fresco on the counter-façade - a Universal Judgement by F. Fenzoni, inspired to the one in the Sistine Chapel

The designations and distinctions of Cathedral, Basilica and Duomo are interesting, wrapped in Liturgical legalese and geographic bows, and subject to change at various points in time. This one is a powerbroker of impressive and varied credentials. Theres often slightly schizophrenic aspect to Italian churches. Some are evenly balanced inside and to in terms of artistic appeal. Many are more... More

This cathedral is at the end of the central square of Todi. As usual, you have on a side the City Hall and, on the other, the Cathedral: two different powers, opposed to each other. I expecially loved the facade, in pink marble and the rose window. Inside, there is a huge and spectacular fresco representing "The Universal Judgment", cleary... More
