This ornate church was competed in the 12th century, it has magnificent decorative features inside and out. The murals are not as well preserved as Maggiore Church nearby, but the mosaic floors, Etruscan tombs and some 11th and 12th century details make it outstanding. There...More

This is one of the best examples of Etruscan preservation. Don't not miss it. The floor is a outstanding piece of art in itself. You feel as though you have ed back in

I visited by car, but it would be a fairly easy walk from the center of Tuscania. The church is ancient and very simple, entrance by a voluntary donation. I loved the grounds as well. Architecture is beautiful and I enjoyed taking many detail shots.

The church is built on ruins of Roman and Etruscan origin. It was a victim of an earthquake in 1971 but has been restored. The history here is palpable. Enjoy this remarkable structure.

There are better Lazio hill towns in the area. Only stop by Tuscania if it's on the way to somewhere else.

the hilltop where Tuscania's most famous church is located tends to mystify people. Why does it stand there in majestic isolation, adjacent to a Bishop's residence that hasn't seen a bishop in centuries, surrounded by massive medieval towers? The basic answer is this. St. Peter's...More
