The Basilica of San Gaudenzio is a magnificent structure in the centre of Novara with an impressive cupola. The basilica was built between 1577 and 1690 by Pellegrino Tibaldi and is dedicated to Gaudentius of Novara who was the first Christian bishop of the city. The cupola was completed in 1887 and was designed by Alessandro Antonelli who designed the Mole Antonelliana in Turin. It was equally as impressive inside and I stayed for a while because it was so captivating. When I visited in August 2020 there were strict Covid-19 measures in place with the pews being totally sealed off.

If you go to Novara you can see the dome of the Basilica di San Gaudenzio from almost everywhere. Inside it I could appreciate some musicians training and the sound was great! If you like architecture you will appreciate this Basilica.

When you've finished admiring the exterior, with its towering dome, best photographed from a distance, take a look inside. In my opinion the baroque nave is a masterpiece.
