Camerino Cathedral

The cathedral of Camerino, designed by Andrea Vici and Clemente Folchi, was rebuilt at the beginning of the 19th century on the site of the Romano-Gothic cathedral destroyed in the earthquake of 1799. The interior and the sacristies contain precious examples of polychrome wood carvings from the 13th and 15th centuries, as well as interesting paintings by 17th-century Mannerist painters. It is currently unusable, as is almost the entire city centre, due to the damage caused by the 2016 earthquake in central Italy.

San Severino Cathedral

The Cathedral of San Severino was probably founded in the 13th century for the Augustinians. It preserves the 15th-century facade, a Gothic portal decorated with terracotta remains of frescoes attributed to Lorenzo d'Alessandro. The vast interior was reduced to its present state in 1776 and 1827 when the Augustinian church was transformed into a cathedral.

Matelica Cathedral

Matelica Cathedral was first built in the historic heart of the city. It fell into ruin when the bishop's seat disappeared and was demolished in 1530. In the middle of the 15th century, it was replaced by the Church of Santa Maria della Piazza, which later became a cathedral named after Santa Maria Assunta in 1785.
