The Cathedral

The present building, built to replace an earlier Romanesque church, dating back to the secc. XIII and XIV.
The facade has around all'oculo relief with symbols of the Evangelists and the Agnus Dei. The interior has a single nave with no transept and transverse arches that hold up the eaves, is the result of a recovery made at the beginning of the century. XX. The church is full of paintings due to the artists eugubini '500 (i Nucci, the Basili) but also to foreign artists (Sinibaldi Ibi, Julian Presutti, Dono Doni). Very significant is the Baroque chapel that opens in the middle of the wall d.: Dell'Allegrini contains frescoes and a painting (the Birth of the Virgin) of Gherardi.

A sin. of the high altar is the Seat of the Magistrates, with faux marquetry by Benedetto Nucci. In the choir is the Episcopal Seat, carved in the middle of the century. XVI. The late ancient tomb beneath the high altar contains the relics of SS. James and Marian, the holders of the church. On the walls of the temple are traces of frescoes of the secc. XIV and XV. The wall paintings of the apse, the triumphal arch and the chapels of sin., Are the work of Augustus Stoppoloni (1916-18).
