Pavia Cathedral

The Pavia Cathedral is a Renaissance building with a Greek cross plan and an octagonal dome. A great artist like Leonardo da Vinci had probably contributed to the project. It holds the remains of many saints, including San Siro.

San Michele Maggiore church

It is the oldest religious monument in Pavia, and an example of Lombard Romanesque style, dedicated to Saint Michael the Archangel. The present building was erected during the 11th and 12th centuries

Visconti Castle

Built in 1360 by Galeazzo II Visconti, the castle served as a private residence rather than a stronghold. Now it houses the Civic Museums and contemporary art spaces.

Ponte Coperto

The bridge is one of the symbols of Pavia that connects the historic center of the town with the district of Borgo Ticino, a characteristic quarter once inhabited by fishermen.
