10 reviews of Ferrara Cathedral

Cathedral of Ferrara

Near the Palazzo del Comune is the Duomo or cathedral dedicated to San Giorgio - according to a now lost inscription the church was built by Guglielmo degli Adelardi I (died 1146), ve is buried in it. The sculpture of the main portal is the work of the artifex Nicholaus, mentioned in the lost inscription as the architect of the church. The top of the main façade, with arcades of pointed arches, dates from the thirteenth century and the portal had lions lying and elaborate sculptures above. The interior was restored in Baroque style in 1712, because of a disastrous earthquake in 1570 that destroyed not only the interior of the cathedral, but also numerous buildings throughout the city.
