Opening onto the piazza of the same name, the Cattedrale di San Martino is surrounded by beautiful buildings from various periods. Founded in the 6th century, it became an episcopality in the 8th century.
The cathedral was built in the south-eastern corner of the Roman town. The façade is linked, through the bell tower, to the old building of the Opera del Duomo and other parts of the cloister; along the south side are the sacristy and rectory; the apse portion was originally connected to the archbishop's residence through a series of buildings and gardens that were pulled down to make place for piazzale Arrigoni, the present day square.
