I may be a bit biased as this is the town my family came from, but this church and its history are quite impressive. Considering the current state of the frescos the church has a beauty very different from the many that we visited in Italy. The structure really shines. The stories about the various political struggles the church lived through are interesting. The church's horse stairs are tricky to navigate. The view overlooking the country side are spectacular especially if you are there just before sunset.

So old, like the catacombs in Rome. Three periods of history in one. On the peak of the highest part of town.

Original 11th century church enlarged in the 14th century, it stands on the bluff on the remains of a castle. The pale coloured brick is a stark statement as it stands without modern building sto take from the effect. Beautiful 13/14th century frescoes. 2.50 euro entry. The custodian was very friendly and informative.

Offida, what a nice little corner of history! Good food and nice little shops. If you see no cars around, you may think you are in the past...
