 Popes' Palace

Is the monument symbol of  Viterbo, built under the Pope Alexander 4th by the same architect of Popes' Palace in Avignone.

The Palace hides thousands of secrets and it's near the Dome where the remains of Saints Ilario and Valentino are preserved.

 Medieval  San Pellegrino

Noble palaces, poor houses, towers, courtyards, galleries, balconies, arches, outside staircases : entirely built by stones of grey "Peperino", intact as in the Middle Ages, a wonderful document  of the 13th century life in Viterbo.

Thermal Baths

Date back to Etruscan times when Viterbo was Popes' Headquarters and, as they used to go there, were called "Popes' Baths".

The thermal Centre offers various treatments as Areosol, baths, mud-baths, nebulization, massages, vasculopatic therapy  and so on.

Saint Rose Machine

The Transport of S.Rose Machine  takes place every year during the evening of 3rd September and, without any doubt, is  the event of the year for all the citizens.

An enlighted tower, 29 mts high, 5 tons heavy, is carried on the shoulders of a hundred porters along a 1200mts route in the very centre of Viterbo. Since 2014 the Machine has been

proclaimed heritage of the world.
