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”).

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.

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.
