The oldest church in Orvieto, San Giovenal was built in 1004 on the ruins of an ancient Etruscan temple (probably dedicated to Tinia the Etruscan Jupiter), by the unanimous desire of the rich nobles of the medieval city.
San Giovenale is a Romanesque church whose walls are still partially covered in frescoes. It is located at an edge of the cliff, in the medieval district of Orvieto.
This historic downtown area is particularly striking and remains unchanged over time. The interior and the frescoes of the church are certainly one of the works of relevance to Orvieto, and worth a visit.
