Tarchna, Corneto, Tarquinia

It is probably the most ancient church in Tarquinia. Although it is Romanesque in architectural style, the church has undergone many alterations throughout history which are reflected in the variety of styles, represented both internally and externally: the bichromatic facade and the circular windows in the tympanum from Pisan architecture, the rising arches from Arab influences in southern Italy, the arches in the main apse as well as the series of arches in the facade from northern Italy.

The interior of the church is divided into three naves supported by matching pairs of columns. Along the wall of the nave on the left lies the remains of a 15th century fresco representing St. Anne and the Virgin with Child.
