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.
