Viterbo

Viterbo is an ancient city and comune. It is 80 km north of Rome and it is surrounded by the Monti Volsini and Monti Cimini . The historic center of the city is surrounded by medieval walls that were built during the 11th and 12th centuries. Entrance to the walled center of the city is gained through ancient gates. Viterbo's historic center is one of the best preserved medieval towns of central Italy. Many of the older buildings and churches are built on ancient ruins, recognizable by their large stones. The main attraction of Viterbo is the Papal Palace (Palazzo dei Papi), that served as a country residence in time of trouble in Rome. Other notable monuments are the Cathedral of S. Lorenzo, Palazzo Comunale, Palazzo del Podestà, Palazzo della Prefettura, Romanesque Chiesa del Gesù (eleventh century), Palazzo Farnese (fourteenth-fifteenth century), the Rocca (castle) and much more.
