"Duomo", the main cathedral has the 4th highest tower in Italy (106m).
 
"La cittadella" is a beautiful ex-military area today used for festivals and shows, just acrosa Tanaro River.
 
Santa Maria di Castello church, in the older area of the city, is a medieval church which was destroyed and rebuilt several times; it is possible to view the past layers.
 
Piazza della Libertá holds the city hall and an expensive car park where once was the Dome.
 
In general the city centre is very nice although not at all taken care of and ruined by the cars parked everywhere.
