Spello: a journey through flowers, mosaics and ancient Roman ruins

Few regions are like Umbria, capable of arousing such intense emotions.<br>For the visitor, crossing this region with different profiles and multiple souls is like entering into a dimension where spiritual suggestions, artistic testimonies and environmental highlights perfectly complement each other.<br>Museums and archaeological parks will make you experience a journey through time and history.

Being S.Valentino the patron of the city of Terni , a visit is a must. Nice and quite ambiance to spend sometime.

The church is located a bit outside of the historic center, on the site of the ancient cemetery, where Saint Valentine was buried. The beloved saint was born and became a bishop in this lovely city in the 3rd century and it is quite normal that he is the patron saint of Terni (this is also the reason why the city is known as the “city of lovers”). The ancient basilica was completely reconstructed in the 17th century when the marble altar was constructed to contain the remains of the saint.

This church and Valentine is linked. HA! Was very interesting to visit. It was empty, quiet, peaceful. I like this when visiing churches. Something worth seeing if you have the time.

This church is only average in Italy but anywhere else it would be a must see. The Basilica is well marked in one area and then the signs disappear, Terni is a busy place with lots of stoplights so it took us two passes to actually find it. It is appropriately on via St Valentino! There is limited parking by the church and across the street. We were alone in the basilica so we could look everywhere...the altar has a metal figure in the form of San Valentino in a glass casket above which suspended from the ceiling is an ornate canopy with large glass beads. There are several massive paintings in niches dedicated to saints, the Madonna and Jesus, beautiful religious works of art. Lots of statues as well both inside and out...inside statues in color while outside the niches are filled with statues of saints in white. Go if you are in Terni, it a small gem but worthy of a visit. He is the man on February 14th and this is where it began.
