The Cathedral of San Pietro
One of the symbolic places of the city of Tuscania is the Saint Peter’s Cathedral which stands on the homonymous hill, also called the Acropolis hill. The Saint Peter’s Cathedral is a wonderful basilica-style basilica inside which there are several mosaics and other finds of absolute importance. The area of the crypt in the Gothic style is very suggestive.
From the hill of Saint Peter, just outside the basilica, it is possible to enjoy a fairly wide view over the surrounding valleys. On the same hill it is also possible to visit the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore.
