Take a tour of Brescia New Cathedral in Brescia, Italy - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. The New Cathedral in Brescia, Italy was already ancient by the time it was completed. Construction began on this house of worship in 1604 and was finished in 1825, just down the street from the Old Cathedral. As a result of the long period of construction, the architecture of the edifice incorporates a couple different styles. The shape of the church was designed to be that of a Greek cross outlined by a square. A delicate cupola topped with green tile sits upon the immense like-tiled dome as the final stunning feature to fully complete the structure. The interior of this stately cathedral features painting and frescoes done by prominent artists of the time and years gone by.
