  • Located on corso Garibaldi in the historic centre of Benevento, surely one of the things to see in the city.

  • Very old church, dating back to the 8th century, albeit subject to subsequent work. The Interior is very collected, with a special shape in six columns. Little remains of the original decoration.

  • UNESCO the Saint Sophia Church is worth a visit, small but quaint, retains all the spirituality of the past, the Council after seeing this sacred place for a stroll along the course of Benevento.

  • Today UNESCO World Heritage sites (as testimony of the Lombard Kingdom in Italy), this Church of almost 1300 years was the national monument of Longobardia Minor. Small but full of charm, with traces of early medieval frescoes (rare), as much as possible to the original appearance (it was rebuilt in Baroque style, especially in the Interior, but also including a fountain and a new external Gable), It has an octagonal plan with very special guidance pillars. The best preserved is the apse. The dome, rebuilt later, is higher than the original.

  • Church heritage, rich in history, testimony of Lombard architecture. A central plan, octagonal specifically, with six columns in the Center, probably for reuse. The Bell Tower is detached from the structure and located about ten metres. Very nice the cloister adjoining the Church.

  • The central plan is based on that of the Church of Constantinople, but is very original: six columns, perhaps from the ancient temple of ISIS.

  • Testimony of Lombard architecture, has undergone revisions to the current appearance. Part of the "Longobards in Italy: the places of power" inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage list in June 2011.
