  • In the town center in the main square a small medieval church very Spartan but beautiful outdoors, currently works

  • Beautiful in its simplicity and in some detail, how the ciborium. Located in the main square and is easily accessible, unlike the duomo we found closed even though we were by mid-morning.

  • Beautiful , stone church. .with the most beautiful la fresco. .a must see
  • Located in the main square (and only?) of the small town of Savannah, the Church of St Mary dates from the 12th and 13th centuries. On the walls of the Church, there are a number of frescoes. In the back of the Church are preserved two Roman funerary stones with Epigraphic inscription. The Church alone would be worth a visit to Sovana but there are several interesting sights high.

  • On the left side of Piazza del Pretorio, Sovana is the Church of Santa Maria, which dates back to the 12th century: the original façade and entrance have been lost, while the Interior remained in its original form and has three aisles. In place of the altar there is a beautiful ciborium, which dates back to the 8th century and is unique in the whole of Tuscany: it is a precious piece of white marble, formed by four columns with capitals supporting a conical dome octagonal and is believed to have been placed in this church in the 11th century following restoration work carried out in the Cathedral, where he was. On the walls of the Church of Santa Maria are some ancient frescoes in the chapel in front of the entrance to frescoes of the Sienese school.
