A cathedral in such a small village? Yes, because it is the birthplace of a pope. It isn't the most richly-decorated cathedral but is is historically significant. SOme interesting detail. Limited opening hours but well worth the effort.

2 Euro admission per persn. Very interesting duomo at the far end of Sovana opposite the castle. Nice book shop on site. If you buy a book you get a 2E pp discount (i.e. your admission back).

This Duomo was so unassuming and stately from the exterior. The buttressed ancient walls decorated with animal motifs, provide immediate interest.

The interior is HUGE and fitted out with many fine monumental religious pairings from centuries past.

There is also a reliquary on the lower level very much worth a look.

You enter the site through an EXCELLENT bookstore. If you make a purchase, which is easy to do - the ticket price is deducted from it. At this time it was 4 euro to gain access.

As an added treat, if you look northwards over the pathway to the cemetery, you will see lovely gardens and a lush green maze, part of the resort in town.

Interesting to visit this ancient site, learn the history and see the ruins. Very few people around, so it quiet and contemplative there. Made for great photography.
