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).

The church was silent and really mystical. Take time to walk outside, around the building and take a look at the carvings around the main... 更多

This is an ancient Romanesque Cathedral with a beauty of design that almost mystically captures the sense of ancient faith... 更多
