Do you love bread and all things carbs? If so, a visit to the bread cathedral is a must! This impressive feat of architecture and artisanship can be found in Italy right around Easter. The cathedral is constructed over a three month period leading up to the Easter holiday and usually lasts a few months before it is taken down.
The tradition of the bread cathedral can be traced all the way back to ancient times. When royalty came to visit, they expected to be greeted by fancy displays and riches. The people of this particular villiage were poor farmers, but they had a lot of bread!
Obviously, the cathedral has changed over time, with artists spending months working on pasta murals and elaborate chandeliers. We think you’ll agree that the result is stunning and quite impressive!
