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).

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.

ancient Etruscan artifacts, history and the very different tabernacle in the church...this was one of the most unique villages in Maremma, I thought.

Don't miss this Duomo, an ancient church built on the remains of an Etruscan site. There is a spiritual essence in this building..the stone walls seemed to have absorbed eons of prayers. Two special times each year--Summer and Winter Solstice, a minor miracle occurs. The...More

This is an ancient Romanesque Cathedral with a beauty of design that almost mystically captures the sense of ancient faith (complemented well during our visit by recordings of ancient chant).
