About Duomo Di Orvieto, Orvieto

This is a large 14th century Roman Catholic Cathedral that was constructed on the order of Pope Urban IV. It is said that once a priest was passing this place and saw the altar inside bleeding badly and its clothes were all blood stained. The stained cloth is now stored safely inside the cathedral.

  • The architecture and design is very elegant, with the facade being the most notable part of the whole building. This is one of the finest masterpieces of the Middle Age.
  • There is a beautiful large rose window, golden mosaic works and 3 large bronze doors.
  • Inside are 2 mind blowing frescoed chapels with paintings of Judgement Day.
  • There are 5 bells that are tuned to E- Flat.
  • The piers have the carvings of stories from The Testament, Tree of Jesse and other tales of mythology.
  • The Chapel of San Brizio or the Capella di San Brizio was a 15th century addition to the cathedral. It is separated from the main cathedral by 2 iron gates. The main piece of painting inside is of Madonna with child and angels. The other notable frescoes here are The Preaching of the Anti Christ, The End of the World, The Resurrection of Flesh, The Damned are taken to Hell and The Elect in Paradise.

  • Just a masterpiece! Don't believe the pictures, go see it yourself! Splendorous, colorful, beautiful!

  • Orvieto is absolutely epic.  It's a mountain-top city built dramatically behind cliffside walls, built entirely of stone.  It is beyond ancient - originally founded around the Etruscan era, nearly impossible to access, let alone attack.  It was finally annexed by Julius Caesar and has served many strategic purposes since. The cathedral. Is. Insane.  I can barely begin to describe it to you.  You've heard of it's size, and you've probably seen photos, but it ever does the massive structure justice: it is a feat of humanity, and a joy to rediscover upon every revisiting.  The Orvieto Cathedral has a typical striped exterior, white tavertine and green-black basalt, which, to an American seeing a church for the first time, may remind you of Christmas.  It's anything but.  If you are lucky enough to first see it after turning an alley corner, beware of losing your breath.  The Gothic façade of the Orvieto Cathedral is one of the great masterpieces of the Late Middle Ages, decorated with saints, golden biblical depictions, and an enormous stained glass rose window. Orvieto is worth visiting for the cathedral alone, but the city is also home to beautiful alleys, fantastic gelato, ancient water wells, and an overlook of the valley below. I can't recommend Orvieto higher.

  • Beautiful cathedral in a grand setting. Entrance was €4 and you get a small leaflet with information on the art in the cathedral. I particularly liked the frescoes of the judgement day scene, by the statues of Adam and Eve.

  • Our hosts, my wife's relatives in Valentano, took us on several sight-seeing day trips when we visited in 2005. This beautiful cathedral was one of the highlights and I remember the dark, meditative atmosphere within the main room. To be there now and imagine the early worshippers in the same space in the 1590's was a joyful experience.

  • Awesome. Go inside and check the height and mesmerising geometry of the ceiling
