The remains of the old Roman walls are an integral part of the center of the town of Novaro. Yet, the dominating structure is the Duomo of Santa Maria. This is a 19th century neo-Classical cathedral. By Alessandro Antonelli, it incorporates some elements of an earlier Romanesque structure. You can see the old Mosaic flooring. Sculptures inside include a Crucified Christ (15th century). The Chapel of San Siro is from the Cathedral’s earlier period. Three walls of the Chapel contain 12th century scenes of the life of San Siro. In front is a Baptistery Building. It is the oldest monument in the city, hailing back to the 5th century. Inside is the Apocalypse fresco of the 11th century. For art lovers, the Duomo is one excellent reason for booking a room in a hotel in Novaro. Another is the Celtic stone of San Bernardino (200-100 B.C.). It is housed in the Rectory of Saint Mary. Wander over to them from your comfortable room in a nearby Novaro hotel.
There are many religious and secular buildings to explore in town. Not far from the stoops of some of the hotels in Novaro, you can find the Basilica of San Gaudenzio and the Novarese Museum. The Novarese Museum of Archeology, Art and History (1874) is in the 1910 Hall Marketplace. The Faraggia Ferrand Natural History Museum is in the amalgamation of styles and buildings called the Broletto. It contains work by Carlo Beretta and other Lombardi paintings. You should also visit the Basilica San Gaudenzio (1577-1659). The Bell Tower is to an 18th century design by B. Alfieri. The 121-m dome is by Alessandro Antonelli (1798-1888). Inside is the raised crypt containing the remains of St. Gaudenzio. The interior contains sculptures by Pietrro Zucchi.
