I found out after visiting San Pellegrino that it is the biggest original medieval area in the world and it actually is. It is amazing to walk around and get lost in the tiniest streets you have ever seen. We had our baby in his...More

For as far as the eye can see, all the buildings in the Quartiere San Pellegrino are made of peperino stone, a locally found grey lava trachite typically used in Viterbo in the Middle Ages. The Quartiere is full of impressive one and two storey...More

The San Pellegrino quarter is one of the best preserved and maintained medieval neighborhoods we've seen in any Italian city. It's charming, clean, and located very near to the cathedral and papal palace.
