Not as impressive as some of the Italian Duomo scattered throughout this magnificent country - but nevertheless one can only be struck by both the architecture and the historical Mosaics obviously unearthed. The cathedral should be visited when in Taranto and also a good place...More

The church is very old and built with pieces of even older ancient construction parts. Colums from old temples are pillars of the main hall, all in different colour and material. The mosaic covering walls are with thousands of small pieces of different stones. Large...More

The cathedral of San Cataldo is located in the center of the atmospheric but decrepit Old City. The exterior is baroque, but the interior reflects its Romanesque origins in the late llth century. The nave and aisles are separated by what must be ancient Roman...More

We have visited sooooo many churches during our years in Europe. Nevertheless, the side back chapel on the right side is a rare experience. The intricate designs with outstandingly colorful marbles is unique and absolutely worthwhile to observe. If you are anywhere near Taranto, be...More

Small but beautiful chapel and the paintings in the Internal Duomo are a beauty. An attraction you can't leave Taranto without visiting.

I read up on Trip Advisor about this area so knew this cathedral had to be seen. Not to be missed is the chapel at the back with the painted ceiling. The walls and ceiling are breathtaking and I didn't expect it to be so...More

It's an easy to find cathedral that is far more impressive inside than out. It has some very lovely features, however, it's about the size of an UK church so don't expect too much! Definitely worth a visit. Unless you had a tour you wouldn't...More

We have been to cathedrals in Naples, Rome, Milan, the Vatican, and this cathedral is just as amazing. It may not have the same scale as other cathedrals, but the workmanship is mind blowing. You absolutely must see the all stone chapel in the back...More
