    St pamphilus is the patron saint of Sulmona, here celebrated April 28. In his honour the beautiful Cathedral was built in the eighth century d.c.sui remains of an ancient Roman pagan temple. Inside the vault of the nave is frescoed with histories of san Panfilo and Peter Celestine native of Sulmona was elected Pope. There are also a beautiful pipe organ, many paintings, sculptures, frescoes and sarcophagi. The lower floor crypt is the oldest part of the Church, and also the most impressive: 14 columns with vaulted arches, the Saint's Chapel inlaid with polychromatic marbles, the Madonna and child (fresco gorgeous) noteworthy is the Madonna delle Fornaci other sculptural work of the 12th century, a beautiful row of wooden benches, the room dedicated to Pope Celestine V ... the Cathedral of San Panfilo is absolutely not to be missed!

    Among the sights of the city of Sulmona is the Cathedral of San Panfilo, which dates back to 1075, built over a Roman temple and initially dedicated to Saint Mary, was radically renovated in the 12th century, when it was assigned to the patron San Panfilo. If the exterior still retains the medieval appearance, the Interior is markedly Baroque, with the vault of the apse frescoed with depictions of the life of St. Peter Celestine. The crypt is the oldest part of the complex churchy: here not only houses the relics of St. Panfilo, as well as numerous memorabilia that belonged to St. Peter Celestine and historical documents such as the original process of canonization of the Saint.

    We came here by chance along the villa. This church of medieval origin (albeit with some Baroque elements added to the renovation after the fire of the beginning of 1700) was built in the 11th century and the 12th century dedicated to the patron saint of the town
