Official site

The Cathedral of Crema, dedicated to the Assumption, stands on a very ancient site, where already in the 11th century a cathedral had been built that was later destroyed by Barbarossa in 1160.

The current cathedral was rebuilt from 1185 to 1341 in Cistercian style, with the subsequent addition of votive frescoes. The bell tower, on the other hand, was built between the 13th and 14th centuries.

The Cathedral is characterised by a rather slender, gabled facade, which terminates in a loggia, while the portal is decorated with a lunette, which most likely belonged to the previous cathedral, with a group of statues depicting the Madonna and Child flanked by two Saints. The beautiful rose window is made ​​of marble.

The interior has three aisles of five bays, with an apse in the typical shape of Cistercian architecture. While numerous artworks can be admired in the Cathedral of Crema, the true heart of the cathedral is the Miraculous crucifix, which was saved from the fire it was thrown into by a Ghibelline soldier. From that moment on the crucifix has been highly revered by the people of Crema.
