Search this one out, it is well worth the visit. Not as famous or as amazing as the "Field of Miracles", but it is still an astounding piece of medieval architecture

You must visit a less common tourist attraction if you have time. Its very beautiful and not very well known among tourists, maybe cause its on the periphery of city and there is nothing much around it. So, If you'll find it peaceful and quite upon your visit. Its a must visit if you are into old churches else you... More

Wow that's all I can say about the Basilica. The pictures talk for them selfs. Ones you walk in "by the way is free." You feel like you just when back in time. The peace that you feel ones your inside the Basilica makes it hard to describe everything else. I will recommend this location if your ever driving towards... More

Well tucked away, this medieval church is a masterpiece that should not be overlooked. The entrance is free and the church is beautiful and ancient. A must see in the area.

It took for a while to get in, but it was worth of the wait. The church has so much history to it and beautiful. You must cover your knees/shoulders (women), respectfully.

San Piero a Gardo is the real thing, a romanic basilica without all the baroque, the gold and the tourists. It's some kilometers south-west of the center, in a lovely setting. You enter the church and you get the typical smell of an old building, not like in Duomo. The complete church is nothing else than a holiday for the... More
