Lonely Planet review

Once host to the Council of Trent, this dimly lit Romanesque cathedral displays fragments of medieval frescoes inside its transepts. Two colonnaded stairways flank the nave, leading, it seems, to heaven. Built over a 6th-century temple devoted to San Vigilio, patron saint of Trento, the foundations form part of a palaeo-Christian archaeological area (10am-noon & 2.30-5.30pm Mon-Sat, admission €1.50 or included with Museo Diocesano entrance).
