Baroque Itinerary - Sant'Agata dei Goti

Assunta Cathedral Church

Although it dates back to the tenth century, in the eighteenth century the cathedral took on the baroque appearance it still shows today. The structure is built according to a Latin cross floor plan divided into three naves covered by a wooden roof, with eight side chapels which house canvases by Saverio Persico (eighteenth century), Giuseppe Tomaioli (eighteenth century) and Tommaso Giaquinto (1661-1717). In the Chapel of Sant'Anna stands a beautiful marble altar piece depicting the Holy Family by sculptor Giovanni Battista Antonini (eighteenth century). Below the transept lies the crypt, which dates back to the twelfth century.
