  • Unique structure!
  • The Church of St. Peter in Bevagna is a basilica with neo-Gothic characters, set in the medieval tower. The church was built to protect the relics of St. Peter. The building in fact stands in the place where the Apostle Peter was reportedly landed in the 1st century. Dc. During the archaeological excavations carried out in 2004 were unearthed byzantine burials and numismatic finds that suggest the existence, of a previous hypogeic crypt under the current building built between the end of the four hundred and thirty five hundred by the Benedictine monks of the Abbey of St. Lawrence of Aversa to whom, the tower was donated in 1092, by Roger of Altavilla. The altar is carved into the hoof of the tower. The interior is simple to a single aisle, while the exterior has a papal low-relief coat of arms, a historiated window, two side-based low-relief coats of arms, and a small sailing bell tower on the side facade.
