Terni - Duomo di Terni
The Duomo di Terni (= Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta) is located next to the Roman Amphitheatre. A legend tells, that the first cathedral was built by Saint Peregrine already in the 2nd century. Tradition states further that Saint Anastasius, bishop of Terni, built another cathedral on the site in the 7th century. A Romanesque basilica existed end of the 12th century.

The Terni Cathedral of today is the result of modernisation works done in the 16th and 17th century. The the Baroque style was "state of the art".
