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.

On the back of the church stands an iconic tower with three clocks that can be seen from Piazza della Libertá. The interior preserves a set of frescoes dating from the 14th to the 17th century. The church was closed after the earthquake that hit this region of Italy in 2006.

Basilica of St. Nicholas

The 13th-century Basilica of St. Nicholas is part of the Augustinian Monastery in the city of Tolentino. The church was a cathedral until 1586. Initially placed under the invocation of St. Augustine, the basilica was definitively dedicated to St. Nicholas after the accumulation of donations due to the popular fervour for the city's saint.

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.
