  • Church situated just outside Viterbo. Preserves the image of the Virgin Mary wedged in an oak tree. The history of this effigy and church built around is full of episodes that weave between spirituality, faith and popular folklore tales. Wonderful works of art from the Della Robbia and Sangallo the younger adorn the building. The presence of a beautiful organ, a choir and a cloister behind the Church are another reason not to miss the stop. To visit with guide is better.

  • Beautiful church of 1400. Upon entering you are greeted by a towering central nave and two side aisles full of ornaments and statues. The apse is stately, elegant and full of historical references. Beautiful structure, definitely not to be missed
