Novara. Basilica of San Gaudenzio and Antonelliana Dome



The work of Antonelli, the architect of Turin's Mole Antonelliana, the Dome of San Gaudenzio is the symbol par excellence of the city of Novara. Entering the city from different directions, the 19th-century dome is clearly visible towering from above. Strangely, rising in a maze of narrow streets, it is often better seen from a distance than from close up. The rest of the basilica, on the other hand, is of much more recent construction (17th century), and preserves valuable Baroque works, especially in its chapels.
