The Romanesque bell tower of Alba Cathedral is one of the city’s most iconic monuments and characterizes its downtown skyline along with its medieval towers.

The Diocesan Museum’s guides will take you through the history of the Cathedral up to a height of 45 meters: in fact, by climbing up the steps between the walls of the two bell towers, you will reach the top of the ancient tower and from here you can admire the “city of 100 towers” from above.

The visit will continue in the archaeological trail under the Cathedral, where evidence of the city’s Roman and medieval past is preserved, brought to light through archaeological excavations conducted since 2007.

The afternoon will end, for all participants, with a snack in the flower garden of the Cathedral rectory.

Two rounds are scheduled on all dates: 3:30 p.m. and 5 p.m.

MUDI – Museo Diocesano di Alba

Il Museo Diocesano di Alba nasce nel 2012 ed è il risultato di una campagna di scavo archeologico condotta tra il 2007 e il 2012 all'interno della Cattedrale di San Lorenzo. Il Museo ospita il lapidario, una raccolta eterogenea di pietre e marmi databili tra il I secolo e il XVII. Visitando il percorso archeologico sotterraneo si possono riscoprire le origini della città romana di Alba Pompeia, i resti della cattedrale paleocristiana e le sue trasformazioni fino al XII secolo.
