Padua Cathedral Reviews
Interesting mixture of styles Apr 05, 2011
The cathedral in Padua dates back to as early as the eleventh century and has received regular attention from architects. It is said that Michelangelo himself cast an eye over the plans for the building after the Romanesque version was demolished.
Apart from the age of the cathedral, the interior is a rather interesting mix of art. You see many chapels which are dotted with the obvious pictures of saints, Christ or Madonna. However, the main altar itself is bang up to date, with a style that is similar to art nouveau or something from the early half of the twentieth century at least.
Definitely worth popping into if you are visiting Padua.
