The Cathedral - Santi Pietro e Francesco

The Cathedral of Massa, entitled to Santi Pietro and Francesco d'Assisi, is the central building of the city; it has become also the most ancient, after the demolition of the Collegiata di San Pietro in Bagnara, at the beginning of the 19th century. The title it of San Pietro was therefore moved to the Cathedral of San Francesco, whose construction dates to the 15th century. Towards the half of the 17th century the church of San Francesco endures serious damages because of a thunderstorm. Lord Lorenzo Cybo, that payed the repairs, organized also works of widening. The church was reconstructed between 1660 and 1670. In 1675 the Duke Alberico II decided to built the family chapel in proximity of the church. Inside the cathedral, there are many works of remarkable importance. Other works are kept in the nearby Museum of Sacred Art.
