Anagni, the Town of Popes

Anagni is a well known town as it was a papal residence in the Middle Ages and it was the birthplace of four popes. The name of Anagni is particularly connected to the events of Pope Boniface VIII and the episode that is remembered in Italian history as the ‘Schiaffo di Anagni’ (Anagni’s Slap).
Walking through medieval streets and squares you will admire stylish austere palaces and Romanesque churches, towers, loggias and simple sombre architecture of the town squares.

The town’s notable landmarks include Boniface VIII’s Palace, the Palazzo Comunale, the Casa Barnekow and several churches. The most important one is The Cathedral with its magnificent crypt. Its frescoes covering all the walls and the ceiling are one of the most interesting examples of cycle of paintings of the 1200s.
