History

The present cathedral probably stands on the site of a Byzantine church. In 1080, a church was built here by the conquering Normans, which was elevated to the status of a cathedral in the early 15th century.
The building has undergone a number of refurbishments. The present façade dates to 1710–1725. The interior contains both medieval frescoes and 19th-century frescoes by Cesare Maccari.
