  • Church dating from the 4th century, Romanesque, of which today remains the portal and the structure with three naves. The capitals of the columns are all different from each other, many were recovered from Roman constructions. The baptistery dates from the XIV century and was remodeled in the 17th century. The Church is now a Museum, created to allow visits to existing buildings that lie below the current floor. There are remains of buildings ranging from the first to the twelfth century. Domus romana, Christian Church, Roman baths, up to Carolingian and medieval artifacts. All emerged following impressive excavations that began 70 years of last century. I would say charming and evocative.

  • Entering the Church of Saints John and Reparata can meet a part of local history by looking at the components of the Church of Santa Reparata and of the adjacent Baptistery of St. John. The escavos held in the baptistery behave themselves in the light ruins, ranging from the I century b.c. to TWELFTH century a.d. the panorama from the tower is beautiful. Well worth a visit.

  • Deconsecrated Church currently used for concerts. Wonderful paintings. Perhaps the most interesting is the archaeological dig that has been carried out. You can visit and we will find the remains of the early Christian Church with well-preserved baptistery and the remains of earlier Roman houses in the same place.
