“If you should be in Terni...see the Basilica of St Valentine”

Basilica san Valentino
Ranked #8 of 71 things to do in Terni
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 12 June 2017

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.

Beautiful Bascilica. Little parking next to front of church. Worth the visit. Don't miss the entrance doors art.

Every year on February 14th there is a big market around the Basilica San Valentino. The church itself is nice, sort of average if you have seen other churches of that epoch in Italy, but the happening around it while inside the mass is going on and broadcasted in TV - this is the real delight for eyes and stomach. Here an excerpt of my photoseries published on Google (find me under Adelheid Hörnlein) last year. I was fascinated by the life there and the abundance of the offerings

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.
