The Cathedral, with its imposing marble façade and the bell tower high about 80 metres, is, no doubt, the most important monument of the city. In the Chapel of Theodolinda there is the Iron Crown , supposed to contain one of the nails used for the cruxifiction. The Cathedral's museum also preserves the most complete collection of barbaric art between the IV and the IX century.
