The Cathedral of Ivrea, dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, stands on a hill in the old part of the city, a few steps from the Castle with red towers and the Palazzo del Biscovado, which is connected by a covered walkway. Its more than a thousand-year history is evidenced by the preserved parts of its Romanesque structures and by the series of subsequent interventions that changed its physiognomy, adapting it gradually to emerging aesthetic tastes, baroque and neoclassicism.
