A marvel of alternating layers of pale and dark green marble, this cathedral has a façade—covered with opulent carvings and figures—that is worth its own half-hour sit and stare. Inside are the carved wooden stalls, the pulpit, and the frescoes, but the most breathtaking of all are the 56 marble floor panels depicting scenes from the Old Testament.
