Anagni: an ancient town loved by popes

 

Anagni is known as the “City of Popes” because several Popes were born there.

The beautiful cathedral and the crypt are a demonstration of a relevant period of Christian history.

In 1104 the construction of the cathedral was completed. The real treasure of the cathedral is the crypt, known as “the Sistine of the 13th century”, located beneath the sanctuary. It is divided as the church above. At first the entrance was a secret passage to protect the hidden treasures.

The crypt is entirely covered with frescoes made by three anonymous “masters” dated to early 1200, in an excellent state of preservation, representing subjects with plastic and expressive schemes which preceded the development of the painting of Cimabue and Giotto.

The tour includes the visit of the Cathedral, the Cathedral’s Museums, the Crypt, the Horatory and the Palace of Popes.

As previously mentioned, the Crypt of Anagni is also known as the Sistine of the Middle Ages, due to the majesty of the frescoes located inside. If you are an art lover and you want to discover other wonderful frescoes, you can’t miss the visit to the Sistine Chapel of Mannerism inside the Oratory of Gonfalone. You can find it in our “The Pope of Renaissance” tour in the “Private Tours” section.
