The Tivoli you don't expect

Church of St. Peter of Charity

Damaged during the bombing of 1944 and restored around 1951, the Church of St. Peter of Charity is characterized by a unique Romanesque style, which makes it one of the most beautiful places of worship in Tivoli. It was built by Tivoli-born Pope Simplicio on the ruins of an ancient Roman villa.

The façade, a brick curtain wall, is characterized at the bottom by three portals that lead to the three naves inside, and at the top by two side windows and a central eye. The wonderful bell tower that looks over the surrounding area is decorated with cornices and arched windows. The interior is characterized by a cosmatesque floor that adorns the nave, and by some works of art in the apse of the main altar, as the "Christ crucified between the Virgin and St. John the Evangelist", dating from the fourteenth century and the "Madonna Enthroned with Saints Peter and Paul", dating from the thirteenth century.
