The importance of this city in past eras makes it even among the most important in Italy. In fact Orvieto , city-state of Etruscan origin very important then conquered by the Romans, was in the Middle Ages the most important city of Central Italy after Rome, on some occasions even more important than the latter. In fact there were many popes who stayed in this city because they considered it the natural heir, for importance, of the city of Rome, seat of the papacy. In fact, great historical-religious events happened here: Pope Innocent III from the pulpits of the church of Sant'Andrea had proclaimed the Fourth Crusade; in 1281, in the same church, in the presence of Charles I of Anjou, was elevated to the papacy Pope Martin IV and, in 1297, in the church of San Francesco, was the canonization of Louis IX of France, pope Boniface VIII. Orvieto is also famous for its palaces, monuments and churches of great beauty and enormous historical importance, such as the famous Domus: There are no words to describe it, just think that it started in 1290 and was finally completed in 1591, it is a work of Gothic architecture among the most important in Italy in the genre and among the most famous and wonderful places of worship in the country.
