Tarchna, Corneto, Tarquinia

The Tarquinia territory, one of the vastest in Italy, stretches from the shadowy woods of Viterbo all the way to the sunny beaches of the Tyrrhenian coast.
Throughout the centuries this land provided food and shelter to numerous peoples.
The present-day Tarquinia, with its pulsing vitality and in full expansion, is the living aspect of a constellation of other cities that died silently and whose traces can still be seen. In summer you can sunbathe on the local beaches and swim in the calm waters of the Tyrrhenian sea, but in any season you can enjoy the coast, the countryside, the woods. The city has a lot to offer at any time of the year.

Church of Our Saviour

This small 12th-century church is decorated with a very linear facade and a single portal adorned with an arch. The rear of the church with an apse bearing evidence of many different stylistic influences is distinctly more interesting. The overhanging arches have been influenced by the Lombard style while the diamond-shaped motif of the moulding is clearly from Pisa. The interior of the church consists of a single nave with a roof construction known as “capriata” or truss. In the apse the remains of a 15th century fresco depicting Our Saviour can still be seen, while along the walls of the church remain traces of yet more antique paintings. On the right-hand wall the image of the Virgin is still discernible.
