Duomo d'Arezzo – Arezzo Cathedral

  • Duomo d'Arezzo – Arezzo Cathedral

    Also known as the Duomo dei Santi Donato e Pietro, Arezzo Cathedral occupies the site of a
    pre-Christian temple in the hilly, northern part of town. The lofty Duomo, dating from the late 13th century, boasts a Gothic bell-tower, but still feels stranded on its hilltop site. Inside the cathedral are fine 16th-century stained-glass windows and the Gothic tomb of Guido Tarlati, which flanks the serene St Mary Magdalene fresco by Piero della Francesca. This work can be contemplated in comparative peace, unlike the frescoes in the Basilica di San Francesco which may attract tour groups. If in the mood for more sacred art, call into the Museo Diocesano di Arte Sacra (the Museum of Sacred Art) behind the Cathedral. Inside are medieval crucifixes and Vasari frescoes salvaged from other churches in the region.
