  • The CATHEDRAL of ST. MARY of the PURIFICATION of considerable architectural interest is the Cathedral of Termoli where are the bodies of the patron saints of cities, San Basso and Saint Timothy. It is built on the highest point of the promontory Termoli. Difficult to determine the date of construction of the basilica, the sumptuous elegance and decorative paintings offer a clear testimony to the wide variety of accents, which while not linked to any exceptional personality, attest to the excellence of the local schools.  The construction of its first walls, dating back to a.d. 575, was executed on the ruins of a Roman temple dedicated to Castor and Pollux, at the time of the Lombard Duchy of Benevento, when Termoli was erected to county seat. Of this first building, after the Saracen incursion of 842, the earthquakes of 1117 and 1125, the sacking of the troops of Lothair III in 1137, little remains except the track of apses, now the crypt of the Cathedral of modern construction, and the interesting mosaics trichomes (white, red and black), 92 cm. Under the present Church floor. The new monument, rebuilt by Alfano (see famous people) suffered a new fire in 1210 by Otto IV, directed in Puglia with the intent to subtract to Frederick II the Kingdom of Sicily. In 1240 the Venetians arrived later making an assault with 25 galleys, making rich booty in town and always making serious damage to sacred art construction. Another destruction was made in 1456 after another earthquake which caused the fall of the Bell Tower and the trusses of the nave of the Church. In 1566 the Turks of Pialì Pasha attacked violently the city making havoc of the Cathedral. Even an earthquake in 1627 damaged Termoli, but it was during this time that doing some renovation work in the Cathedral, were found the bodies of San Basso in 1760 and St. Timothy in 1945. The façade of the Church is built of rough stone grey-Clare of Gargano.   SMALL DETAILS on the façade can be seen on both the right and left lines indicating Greek measures. Their function was to provide a means of measuring of fabrics or more. They were placed before the church because in front of the eye of God you can not cheat. Another detail: on the right side you can see a blind door. With a closer eye you can see along the side of this door of crosses with a glass upside down.   What are they? Well, these are the crosses of the Templars.  But what about the Templars with? Our city took part in the Fourth Crusade 1204 a.d. 1202-commanded by Duke Obe who stole from Constantinople the relics of Saint Timothy. On the front there are also small human faces in the Act of spitting from the Moors. This was a clear symbol of the presence of Crusaders.   During the renovation of a House was found a grave of a Templar and during the construction of the square of the Pope were found graves containing monks with crosses Templars (unconfirmed source). Due to renovations of the Cathedral, in the early 1990s, came into existence, in a totally random a necropolis to which access was given by locals of the sacristy. Within these environments were discovered a continuous series of underground rooms where they were found, among other things, a lot of Celtic crosses. Source comuneditermoli.it
