Take a tour of Cremona Cathedral in Cremona, Italy - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. Located in the Lombardy region of northern Italy, in a town of the same name, is the stunning Cremona Cathedral. The cathedral's façade was initially Romanesque in design and was later renovated with additional Baroque, Renaissance, and Gothic elements. The bell tower dominates the skyline surrounding the cathedral grounds and is known as the “tallest pre-modern tower in all of Italy. Construction of the cathedral began in 1107, but took nearly seven decades to complete because of a devastating earthquake in 1117. The interior is decorated with Renaissance art, including 15th through 17th century frescoes, reliefs, sculptures, wood workings, and statues. The works of many famous artists are displayed both inside and outside the cathedral, adding to its cultural and historical importance.
