Saint George's Cathedral and Basilica in Ferrara
Ferrara Cathedral (Basilica Cattedrale di San Giorgio) is the largest religious building in the city and is located in downtown Ferrara (Emilia-Romagna region), not far from the Palazzo Comunale and the famous Castello Estense. The cathedral is dedicated to Saint George, the patron saint of the city, and was founded in the 12th century (to find out more please visit the Wikipedia dedicated page, click here).
The former cathedral, also dedicated to Saint George, still stands on the right bank of the river outside the city walls and is now known as St George's Basilica outside the Walls (San Giorgio fuori le mura), because it was built outside the city walls. It is the oldest church in the city, and its history is closely linked with the origins of Ferrara itself (to find out more please visit the Wikipedia dedicated page, click here).
There is a local belief, that Saint George slew the dragon, who inhabited the river Po. Possibly, the dragon represented the fear of the inhabitants, that the river would destroy the city of Ferrara by its frequent floods.
