The Duomo of Macerata is dedicated to San Giuliano, the patron saint of travelers, pilgrims and innkeepers. The structure was built between 1459-1464 and while the facade was never completed it seems to be a unique cross between neo-Romanesque and Renaissance styles. The accompanying bell tower bears similar style transition.

The vast and luminous interior is built on a Latin-cross plan with barrel-vaulted nave, two side aisles and a decorated cupola capping the cross. The neoclassical interior is a delightfully decorated space. There are beautiful works of art adorning the ceilings and the side chapels. The crypt is another church, holding the holy relics of San Giuliano.
