The Duomo has impressive stone filigree stonework on the facade but alas when we arrived (3 p.m. on Weds afternoon), it was shuttered tight. Nearly all the exterior is covered with local Carrarra marble.

A truly amazing structure with a long and storied history. My grandparents were married there in 1899 and I was able to get a copy of their marriage certificate.

This is an old church well hidden in Carrara. Ofcourse marble building. Totally open and no church-official refusing ladies entry when in shorts. New wooden roof.

The façade of the Romanesque/Gothic Carrara cathedral is massive, whereas the rose window is as ethereal as a doily. The beautiful quality of the marble gives it varying shades according to the hour of day: from bluish, to rosy, to sparkling white. Stunning.

The ancient duomo is made with the local marble and the mere history is awesome. This ancient church is located in the central historic district where you will find many original structures.

The church, the Art district, the markets and the friendly local restaurants are all worthwhile, but a great location to visit the surrounding historic areas.
