Description

The Assumption of Our Lady Cathedral is the city of Bolzano’s main architectural highlight, sitting centrally on the town’s main piazza, Walther Square. The large stone church is a fine example of both the Gothic and Romanesque design styles, a look it was given in several iterations over the 15th and 16th centuries. In addition to its impressive architectural forms, the Assumption of Our Lady Cathedral presents other beautiful visual works, such as the frescos on its interior walls. The church is also home to a treasury museum, which contains one of the most extensive collections of baroque and medieval sacred artifacts in the entire Tyrol region.
