La Piazza del Duomo

We will start our route from La Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square), in the heart of Trento, which is one of the main squares, and the city's political, religious, and social center.

La Fontana del Nettuno

In the center of the square, there is the magnificent Fontana del Nettuno (Fountain of Neptune), stunning and fairly massive, sculpted by Francesco Antonio Giongo in 1768.

La Cattedrale di San Vigilio

La Cattedrale di San Vigilio or Il Duomo di Trento (The Cathedral of Saint Vigilius) is the main religious structure in the town constructed in the 11th century and then renovated several times over the years with many 14th century frescoes.

This is Romanesque-Baroque church, built over a pre-existing church from the 6th century devoted to Saint Vigilius, patron saint of the city. It was the seat of the Bishop of Trento until 1802. It has two staircases built into the walls and a large rose window with the Wheel of Fortune on the façade.
