Cattedrale di San Giusto. Mar 17, 2017
Towards the middle of the fifth century there was a basilica on the site of this church. It was built in place of a Roman temple dedicated to Jovis, Juno and Minerva. This church was probably destroyed in the IX century. Between the IX and the X century two churches were built on the site of this basilica. In the XIV century these were joined to form the cathedral you see today.

There are several mosaics and frescoes inside this church.

Here' s a short description of some mosaics you can see. The mosaics on the apse on the left; date to the beginning of the XII century. They depict the Madonna, the angels Gabriel, Michael and apostles. The mosaics on the apse on the right date around the XIII century. Here you see Christ with saints Justus and saint Servolo. On the central apse there is a mosaic made in 1932.
