  • As per title, worth the visit asked Church. Small but absolutely loads of charm and history. It's like being catapulted back in time. Recommended!

  • Sovana is a delightful medieval and Renaissance style, with a rich archaeological heritage constituted mainly by the numerous Etruscan necropolis. Wonderful piazza del Pretorio, where the most interesting monuments, including the Church of santa Maria Maggiore with its canopy of the ninth century, the palazzo dell'archivio and the very impressive Praetorian. A visit is worth the Church of San Mamiliano, ancient and recently became a Museum, where a remarkable collection of gold coins in late Roman times, which were identified in the legendary treasure of Monte Cristo. The country, which is also like other built in Tuff, contains very few inhabitants, but it is always full of life, thanks to the large influx of tourists: after all, one is a gem!
