Sovana

The antique town of Sovana said to be the native town of Pope Gregorio VII (Ildebrando da Sovana) is one of the major Etruscan centres of the Maremma.

This town hasn’t always been inhabited: it was inhabited during VII, VI and IV centuries B.C. major development of the town took place with the surrender of Vulci in Rome in 280 B.C. It had been a diocese cathedral city since the VI century. The medieval buildings date back to the XIII – XIV centuries. This town hasn’t always been inhabited. It was inhabited during the VII, VI and IV centuries B.C.

Very evident is the Duomo of IX-XI centuries, then reconstructed during the 1300.  From the XIII centuries La Rocca and the church of S.Maria inside which we can see the beautiful tabernacle of IX-X centuries. There are Etruscan tombs in the surrounding hills. The temple and tomb according to Ildebranda, re-new the memory of Gregorio VII of Sovana.

The room below from which we access by a narrow corridor, is extremely simple and contrasts with the rich outside decorations.  It has sloping ceilings with a centre beam and at the end a counter with two cavities, which were destined to hold in the middle, a sarcophagus of decorated wood with bronze studs.
