The large structure over the main altar is the “baldacchino” whose top dome imitates the main exterior dome of the Cathedral. The white marble figure of Christ crucified dominates the sanctuary. The bishops chair or “cathedra” is on the west side of the sanctuary. It is this chair that makes this church a “cathedral.”
