The Cathedral of Modena

Historical landmark
5 minutes away
The Cathedral of Modena is the primary church of the city and of the Modena-Nonantola Archdiocese. A Romanesque masterpiece, it was built by the architect Lanfranco on the burial site of St Geminianus, patron saint of Modena, where two churches had previously stood from the 5th century. In the cathedral crypt are two relics of the saint, preserved in a simple 4th-century urn covered by a stone slab and supported by expropriated columns. The sarcophagus, preserved in a glass case, is opened each year on the saint's feast day, 31 January. The saint's remains, clothed in Bishop's attire with the pastoral set beside him, are displayed for the devotion of the faithful. Beside the cathedral stands the bell-tower known as the Ghirlandina. The Cathedral of Modena, the Ghirlandina and Piazza Grande were declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997. The Cathedral underwent restoration to reinforce it from 2007 to 2008. Some supporting beams that had deteriorated were replaced, and cracks in the walls were repaired. The rose window, which was shown to be rather unstable, was also restored, both its small columns (which were dismantled and reassembled one by one) and the 15th-century multi-coloured glass. The glass in particular underwent in-depth analysis conducted by the University of Padua so as to identify the non-original parts, which had replaced the original pieces over the centuries (and after wars) with low-quality glass; the studies aimed to replace them definitively with more suitable materials. As regards the façade, the intention is to seize the opportunity to restore the bas-reliefs by Wiligelmo depicting the Stories of Genesis (those on either side of the main entrance particularly need restoring) as well. The southern side, that facing Piazza Grande, is also slated to be restored, as it appears to require some care.


Phi Hotel Canalgrande is an elegant Hotel in central Modena, the only four-star Hotel in the heart of the city’s historic centre. In 2019, the Hotel received the prestigious seal of quality corresponding to the first level of certification issued by the Italian Registry of Historic Houses of Excellence. The austerity of the exterior contrasts with the rich decoration inside: the atrium in the entrance and the adjacent rooms feature decorative touches inspired by Neoclassicism; in some rooms, these are mixed with optical effects typical of Rococò. Strategically located for business and leisure trips, the Hotel is a convenient and practical base for getting around the city and the rest of the region.
