Church of Santa Maria intus civitatem - Castro (VT)

Santa Maria intus civitatem is located in the southwestern part of the ancient city, one of the four city gates stood nearby.
The church has different construction phases whose first chronological location dates back to the thirteenth century, as evidenced by the typology of the Latin cross plan, with the organization of the presbytery area concluded in three apses, from the regularity of the recourses of the masonry ceramic elements inserted in the masonry of the vault, which can be placed between the second half of the 13th century and the first half of the 14th century. A subsequent phase is to be considered the infill of the apse and the monumentalization of the altar, with a travertine aedicule, dating back to the Renaissance period, 16th century.
