  • Look for the dome on the skyline in the old town. It's a small but beautiful place. No photos or videos though and very quiet so be respectful of this.  more »
  • Church to visit for those who switch to Tuscania. Really impressive outside the village ... Recommended ...

  • We returned to this church that is not always open after 20 years of marriage and maintenance remained intact in its beauty. To see!

  • Step way back into history!
  • For the Hill of San Pietro in Tuscania we find the Church of s. Maria Maggiore, whose existence is known from 595. The Church was rebuilt with a T in the 11th century and was modified in the 12th century in Romanesque style and made a Basilica with three naves. In the early 13th century it was stretched and the current façade was realised with the construction of the Bell Tower in front of the façade. The Interior has a basilica: the three Romanesque naves are separated by arcades of six bays: the apse is the Bishop's Chair. The large paintings that adorned the Church, for more private in the last two centuries of the side altars and all the furnishings, there is not much, but it still has the large fresco of the last judgement on the back wall.

  • Another sudden jewel that is couple to another Church of San Pietro in Tuscania, from historical information on Etruscan arce that you have these two churches were built in different form, perhaps, but since the 5th century, the walls inside the nave though Here are not obvious. Is placed by the side of the road and at the beginning of the ascent of arce for San Pietro and limpid with a mighty torra perforated by mullioned Windows blind Bell. The façade is of nenfro and white marble in which the rose window with the usual animals representing the four evangelists, has three splayed portals and a valuable Lunette enriched almost twisted columns with statues, the portal is divided by a series of rosette twisted columns flanked by sculptures of Saints, we are at the beginning of a stunning Romanesque with local interpretation, perhaps led by Roman craftsmen, the Interior has three naves, the Church was damaged by the earthquake, interesting in the presbytery and in the Byzantine-inspired frescoes, but very Ambo damaged.
