Concattedrale dei Santi Pietro e Paolo

Piazza del Duomo 3 (Sorano)


Sovana Cathedral (Italian: Duomo di Sovana; Concattedrale di San Pietro) is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Sovana, now a frazione of the town of Sorano, in the province of Grosseto, region of Tuscany, Italy, dedicated to Saint Peter. Formerly the episcopal seat of the Diocese of Sovana (from 1844 the Diocese of Sovana e Pitigliano, and from 1981 the Diocese of Sovana-Pitigliano-Orbetello), since 1986 it has been a co-cathedral in the diocese of Pitigliano-Sovana-Orbetello.

History

Tradition holds that Sovana was made a bishopric in the 5th century. A church on the site, still evident in the crypt, was founded in the 8th to 9th centuries and documented in a bull by Pope Nicholas II in 1061. It was reconstructed in Romanesque architectural style in 1248.
