In the medieval village of Anagni, which in the Middle Ages was an important centre of power and sees his name inextricably linked to famous Popes (innocent III, Boniface VIII, Gregory IX), one can admire the Romanesque cathedral and the Museo del Tesoro.
You enter the Cathedral and Lapidary Museum of treasure, adjoining the Cathedral, collects the treasure with precious vestments that belonged to innocent III (1198-1216), a native of Anagni, jewellery and works of liturgical use of the XII-XV century.
The building of the Cathedral, stands on the Summit of the Acropolis and is the result of different phases of construction: Romanesque style by Lombard lineage (1072-1104), was replaced the Gothic style around 1250 on the orders of Bishop Sergius who replace the wooden beams of the nave and transept with Gothic arches, adding, in Gothic style, the cappella Caetani
The Museo del Tesoro del Duomo hosted by St. Mary's Cathedral, a distinguished example of Romanesque architecture, displays a collection of vestments and liturgical objects of high artistic level and craftsmanship. It is also in the process of setting up the lapidary, whose main nucleus of materials consists of medieval sculptural furniture from the same Cathedral
