Albenga Cathedral

Local nameCattedrale di San Michele Arcangelo
LocationSavona, Italy

Albenga Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral dedicated to Saint Michael in the city of Albenga, in the province of Savona and the region of Liguria, Italy. It is the seat of the Diocese of Albenga-Imperia.

A church has occupied the site since the turn of the 4th to the 5th century, but the present structure is medieval, built in about 1100, with a major rebuilding in the second half of the 12th century, and another in 1582. A restoration project in the 1970s largely returned the building to the medieval structure. The campanile was rebuilt in its present form in the 1390s.

The relics of Saint Veranus, who was instrumental in the Christianisation of Albenga in the 6th century, are preserved in a shrine.
