Take a tour of Lodi Cathedral in Lodi, Italy - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. In the commune of Lodi, in northern Italy, is a building that exhibits medieval style architecture. Construction of Lodi Cathedral began in 1158, in predominantly Romanesque style architecture. The main entrance, however, is significantly Gothic in style and is supported by lion-based columns. The rose shaped window is situated under a perch that displays a bronze sculpture of St. Bassianus. The adjacent bell tower was built later in the 16th century, but for military reasons it was not fully completed. Within the church are many paneled paintings, decorative vaulted arches, and a crypt housing the relics of St. Bassianus.
