The Unesco World Heritage site of Modena

The Modena Cathedral, one of the greatest examples of Romanesque-style art, was created by the architect Lanfranco and the sculptor Wiligelmo.

Alongside, the elegant Ghirlandina Tower, the symbol of Modena beloved by its residents, soars toward the sky. Be sure to include a climb to the top of the tower in your plans to experience a spectacular 360° view of the city. Back on the ground, stop at the Museums of the Cathedral, whose entrance is next to the Ghirlandina Tower, for an in-depth look at this stunning complex of buildings and to learn more about the history of the Catholic church in Modena.
