The Basilica of St. Martin is an old structure in Belluno that is dedicated to Martin of Tours, the saint who was believed to have lived in the fourth century. It is presumed that this cathedral dates back to the Dark Ages or the Middle Ages and it was rebuilt in 1517 by the architect Tullio Lombardo. Reconsecrated in 1878 after a series of restorations, the church still preserves the paintings by Cesare Vecellio, Palma the Younger and Jacopo Bassano. The crypt has a work of Giovanni Francesco da Rimini. The façade of its structure is characterized by portals made on the initiative of Bishop Alvise Lollino. Moreover, its huge entrance bronze doors have been designed by the sculptor Angelo Canevari and depict the three theological virtues with humility, the coats of arms of Bishop Ducoli and the town of Belluno, the written Ave and Pax.

  • Nice

  • The place that is ALWAYS shown whenever you see adverts for Florence. Walking up to the top of the dome is extremely hard. You need to be fit. My wife is scared of heights but managed it and to this day is glad she kept on going.

  • È un bel duomo. Non imponente come le grandissime cattedrali più famose, ma comunque pieno di opere d'arte bellissime. Ha un clima molto tranquillo e raccolto. Il campanile è riconoscibile da lontano e da qualunque posizione.

  • La Basilica Cattedrale di San Martino è situata in piazza Duomo, in pieno centro storico di Belluno. È stata costruita nel XVI° secolo ed è molto imponente e bella. La facciata è molto semplice ed è costruita in pietra ed ha un campanile molto alto. All'interno molte belle opere d'arte e affreschi.

  • Cattedrale dedicata al patrono della città, con campanile dello Juvarra. Molto particolare la vista dal Piave
