Cathedral of Sant'Andrea

The Church of Sant'Andrea is the Cathedral of Carrara. It is covered almost all with dazzling white marble that is extracted in the nearby quarries. Of the ancient church, mentioned already in 1035, is remained very little. The facade was realized in the second half of the 14th century, and is caracterized by the two-colour effect, typical of the Tuscany, with bands of white and dark marble. The interior has three naves with columns of the previous church, reused in the current one. The most important works of art in the church are the marble Annunciazione, with the angel Gabriele who brings a paper with 'Ave Maria gratia plena' and Maria that watches him, datable to the end of the 14th century and a wooden Cross of the second half of the 14th century. Outside, noteworthy is the Statue of the Giant.
