This church is only average in Italy but anywhere else it would be a must see. The Basilica is well marked in one area and then the signs disappear, Terni is a busy place with lots of stoplights so it took us two passes to actually find it. It is appropriately on via St Valentino! There is limited parking by the church and across the street. We were alone in the basilica so we could look everywhere...the altar has a metal figure in the form of San Valentino in a glass casket above which suspended from the ceiling is an ornate canopy with large glass beads. There are several massive paintings in niches dedicated to saints, the Madonna and Jesus, beautiful religious works of art. Lots of statues as well both inside and out...inside statues in color while outside the niches are filled with statues of saints in white. Go if you are in Terni, it a small gem but worthy of a visit. He is the man on February 14th and this is where it began.
