Cathedral (Duomo, map), founded in the 10th century, dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. Due to the repeated reconstruction, little remains of the original edifice. The Romanesque crypt shows parts which could belong to several pre-existing buildings, including Roman or earlier ones.
The first sight of Sant’Agata de’ Goti makes a magical impression. The picturesque medieval town is perched on a sheer bluff high above a river gorge. Crossing the bridge to the other side of the cliff is like leaving the modern world for the old one.
Sant’Agata de’ Goti is a real gem, a relatively unknown yet captivating town. It is in the Benevento province, on the edge of Campania’s most famous wine country, the Sannio. Here you’ll find fabulous Falanghina and Aglianico, vintages becoming famous world wide.
