... to identity landmarks when rewatching the movie. The church was built in the 11th century and was refurbished in the1500s. The cathedral was built on the site of a Roman temple. From the square of the church is yet another wonderful view of a walled cemetery called Cimitero Della Misericordia.

I am glad that we came to visit, but I don't feel like this would be somewhere I would love to come back to like Rome and Montepulciano.
