Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary

The Cathedral, that is the ancient Church Saint Mary’s Assumption, was built on a pre-existing building at the end of XIV century.

It was restored during the Spanish domination.

From the ancient building it is still possible to admire the Gothic, travertine-made, facade showing a fine portal where is portrayed the ensign of Orbetello and a rose-window surmounted by a hole hosting the chest of the Blessing God.

The interior of the Cathedral is on three aisles divided by pillars.

On the right side is the Cappella di San Biagio (Saint Biagio Chapel) whose inside it is possible to admire some seventeenth-century frescoes and a fine pre-Roman frontal formed by marble-made leaves.Toscana
