An Etruscan-Roman gem of art and history, Sovana was originally called Suana and was an important centre during Roman times.

Sovana continued to be a political and cultural hub over the centuries thanks to its strategic position, and today houses a number of important historical and cultural buildings, including:

• Church of Santa Maria Maggiore
• Duomo of Saints Peter and Paul
• Palazzo dell’Archivio
• Palazzo Pretorio
• Church of San Mamiliano
• Palazzo Bourbon del Monte
