Vicenza Cathedral (Italian: Cattedrale di Santa Maria Annunziata, Duomo di Vicenza) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Vicenza, Veneto, northern Italy. It is the seat of the Bishop of Vicenza, and is dedicated to the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary.
Only the original façade survived the bombing of World War II; the rest of the present building has been reconstructed.
The belltower has five bells in the chord of Eb, the oldest one was cast in the 17th century.
