  • The beautiful church of Santa Sofia, overlooking Piazza Matteotti and Lombard. It was founded by Duke Gisulf II and completed in 762 by Arechis II. The architecture of the building is of exceptional interest. The Church is modest in size, but the General map is original and completely new at the time. It is, in fact, half circular and half stellar and has two concentric corridors created by pillars and columns that form a central hexagon and an external decagon governing the entire time with a play of light and shadow.

  • The Church of Santa Sofia is an ancient religious building of Benevento; is located in the square previously, subsequently named after Giacomo Matteotti. This is one of the most important examples of Lombard architecture in Langobardia Minor, although over the centuries it has been remodelled several times, until its modern appearance. The collection is part of the serial site "Longobards in Italy: the places of power", comprising seven places full of sculptural, pictorial and architectural remains of the Lombard art, writing to the World Heritage list. UNESCO World Heritage site in June 2011. (source Wikipedia)

  • Unesco World Heritage site is a significant reminder of Lombard art in Italy. Only because of its shape with a central plan with six columns arranged at the vertices of a hexagon surrounded by a decagonal ring formed by pillars. The inevitable visit. Highly recommended stop over at near Bookshop and of course the adjacent Museo del Sannio.

  • The Church of Santa Sofia in Benevento, in the Campania region, is one of the finest jewels of Lombard lapidary art who know each other in Italy and who find here expression in dozens of capitals and columns twisted or decorations in bas-relief.
