An Arian cathedral at the time of Rothari, a Lombard king from the 7th century, it is sited close to Theodoric's palace (razed to the ground in 1024), was destroyed in 1921. Since then only the remains of the crypt’s foundations remain as the rest of the building is the fruit of a reconstruction in the 11th century. The crypt was made into an oratory with a single room divided into three naves covered with ribbed groin vaults. Points of interest also include the column capitals which were probably built using materials from the original cathedral, and the Byzantine frescoes which date back to the early 13th century.
