The Cathedral has got a latin cross shape with three naves with columns dressed of plaster simulating pink granite. The walls are painted to white and black lines. The ceiling is to chests with busts of saints work made by Francesco Capriani. Inside the cathedral you can see some wonderful works: on the right transept you can see the Cappella Serguidi with plasters made by Ricciarelli; on the second chapel on the right of the main altar you can see the Deposition (1228); in the first chapel there is the Arca di S.Ottaviano (St.Ottaviano's arch) made by Raffaele Cioli in 1522.
