  • Located next to the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta, was declared a national monument in 1902; in the 12th century there resided Pope Innocent III, Honorius III, Gregory IX, Nicholas IV, Boniface VII and it is precisely because of the presence of the curia, which began its construction in 1283, which was finished in 1288. Two-storey building, façade with a portico on the ground floor, from where leads inside, and the second floor has a loggia, covered by a roof supported by two columns of Roman origin and a central pillar. The imposing portico with two aisles of the ground floor is divided by six cruciform pillars, supporting fourteen bays covered with gothic vaults, hence, passing through a gate you will find yourself in a small inner courtyard with a staircase leading to the first floor. While this charming porch sometimes is often used as a location for exhibitions, on the first floor is the Hall of audiences, a great Hall (46 meters long and 14 wide and 13.5 high) with roof trusses that hosts, since 2005 Diocesan Museum, the Pinacoteca in Rieti. Also on the first floor there are the Sala degli Stemmi and Sala San Probus, frescoed by the Manenti, and our other rooms used as the Bishop's private house or offi CES of the curia. To the left of the building, adjacent to the Cathedral, a fountain, composed of a Roman sarcophagus above which is bricked a bas-relief with a Griffin, from the 12th century.

  • Beautiful with its ampei salt, the vaults, the essentiality of the stone and the excellent state of preservation.

  • If it weren't for some (fake) religion I would put 5 stars because fairly well maintained, too bad that "religion is the opium of the people".
