Overall Guide : The historic center is worth visiting as it is known as the best preserved medieval towns in central Italy. There are many old buildings and specially churches which are built on top of ancient ruins. They are recognized by their... more 50 centimeters to the side and large stones. One of the main attractions of Viterbo is the Papal Palace, which served as a country residence. The columns of the palace are actually spolia from a Roman temple. There is the Cathedral of S.Lorenzo. It was built in Romansque style by Lombard on top of a temple of Hercules. It was rebuilt many times from the sixteenth century and heavily damaged by the Allied bombs in 1944. Other monuments include the Palazzo Comunale. The Romanesque Chiesa del Gesu, the Rocca and many more historic monuments.There is also the city museum which is known by the name Museo Civico and houses lots of archeological specimens from the pre-historical period to Roman times. There is also a gallery with unique paintings.
