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.

The Chapel and Antechamber of Vitelleschi Palace

The enchanting Vitelleschi chapel is based on a rectangular plan with a vaulted ceiling and a projecting apse – next to which lies a triumphal arch flanked by two pairs of twisted columns which support a rising arch that lowers itself gracefully upon capitals. Saint Paul is painted upon a canvas dating back to the 15th century.
The work is attributed to Matteo di Giovanni and the painting had perhaps been previously hung in San Marco. There is also a portrait of G. Vitelleschi painted by C. Mariani in 1886 and a 15th-century, marble, family coat of arms.
Various ceramics decorate the chapel which were excavated therein
