Discover San Lorenzo Cathedral Italy

Built more than a thousand years ago, San Lorenzo Cathedral was renovated for the first time in the 12th and 13th centuries, when the side gates where constructed in a typically Roman style. During this period, even the fašade was modified and the characteristic pattern of horizontal black and white stripes was added, as were the two lions on either side of the front steps. The rose and foiled windows on the upper floor however came the following century. Inside the church, the three naves boast statues by Matteo Civitali and Andrea Sansovino as well as an altar piece painted by Federico Barocci.
