  • The simple façade, however, does not portend the medieval wonder, one of the most perfect examples of Lombard architecture preserved to this day, with overtime and vivid (albeit fragmentary) frescos, opera probably of Armenian artists-Syriacs. Not to be missed.

  • This church, jewel of Byzantine art, a little, a little Lombard, sums up what I love to see and "feel" in a strong chiesa...la feeling of mysticism. I recommend you go there.

  • Is the real reason I went to Benevento. This building, rightly recognized by UNESCO, 13 centuries old and built mainly with Roman remains, manages to create a unique atmosphere and fantastic. The harmonious arrangement of the columns, the Bill defined by time, the altar consists of two capitals and so define a unique experience for those ignorant of art. Highly recommended.

  • 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.
