GEMONA AND VENZONE

VENZONE
The Cathedral Sant’Andrea Apostolo was razed to the ground by the earthquake in 1976 and was then entirely rebuilt, how and where it once was; the restoration works lasted 15 years. Over 7000 stones have been recovered from the debris and put back to their original place. Inside this Gothic, one-nave building with transept and polygonal apses illuminated by narrow windows, you will find the simple and quiet atmosphere typical of the most ancient churches.
GEMONA
Architecture and sculpture are masterly combined in the Gothic Cathedral Santa Maria Assunta, where the huge statue of Saint Christopher has been sculpted in the facade: being their patron saint, he is visible for all the wayfarers and pilgrims passing by. Inside the cathedral we are startled by the pillars which have been ruined and shifted during the last earthquake. The stability of this building is ensured by an invisible support structure made of steel and reinforced concrete..
