Modena Cathedral Reviews
Romanesque heaven Apr 12, 2011
The cathedral of Modena is smack bang in the heart of central Modena and serves as a great example of a Romanesque church. Standing there since the twelfth century, the statuesque building is considered to be one of the finest Romanesque buildings in Europe and has secured a spot on UNESCO’S World Heritage Site list. As the tenor Pavarotti was native to Modena, his funeral was held here when he passed away.
The exterior is very impressive with the stonework. Inside, I thought the decoration was nice enough. It was great to see some local artists colouring the walls, but I didn’t think it contained anything of note. Still, it’s a key building in Modena and if you’re visiting here, it’s a must-see place!
