“Visiting the patron of lovers”

Basilica san Valentino

Attraction details
Reviewed 13 December 2015

The Basilica of at Valentine is located a bit off the city center, in a quiet neighborhood. Since St. Valentine become so famous, you can imagine the buses that stop at this church and the hundreds of tourists who visit each day. Inside the church we saw the body of the saint in a glass coffin. The church is bright, all the walls and the columns are painted in white. We liked this small Basilica a lot.

The basilica is beautiful, quiet and welcoming. It is a fitting memorial to the hero of love and family. Even though the Roman courts prohibited marriage in the church, Saint Valentine devoted his life to giving couples the right to marriage and the blessing of God on their lives. He was beheaded for his disobedience to a Decree of the Roman Empire.

We attended a wedding ceremony, and the atmosphere in the basilica was stunning. Very impressive architecture and was able to see the sunset into the basilica shinning the ornaments in the back. Just very impressed by every little details.

It was a quiet but sunny late morning in May when we visited. The Basilica is tucked away in a side street in Terni. It is small in comparison to others - and there were not many visitors so that in itself was a bonus for us. We entered to violin music - there was a wedding there in the next hour - and enjoyed an uninterrupted and peaceful wander around the interior - go behind the altar where they have the real tomb of San Valentino - and then sat outside in the sunshine and watched the wedding party arrive with the rest of the locals - lovely, simple, atmospheric and somehow romantic because of the lack of any hype or touristy features.
