Cathedral of St Urs

Interesting
Built in the 18C in the Italian taste by two Berne architects, this cathedral has replaced the earlier building to St Urs, patron saint of the town and St Victor. The vast nave is supported by antique columns ending in pilasters with a floral decoration. The sculpted pulpit of pink marble, the paintings in the choir and the transept cross are the major aspects of the décor.
