The Cathedral of S. Martino Al Cimino is a Cistercian abbey and therefore, as such, respects the characteristic structure which, from Clairvaux, of filiation in filiation, is replicated throughout Europe. In S. Martino dominates the town, as in a natural terracing. To His left stood the cloister, for the most part disappeared and presently turned into a little square bearing on one side the remains of the porticoed sides and the Capitular Hall, occupied by one of the two museums The interior features very slender composite pillars and a System of vaults costolonate in line with the constructions of the end of the XII century-beginnings of the XIII century. The Stained glass window on the façade recalls the decorations of the Palazzo dei Papi in Viterbo.
The Cistercian monks have created a real work of art that later was set in the center of a unique Village in the world S. Martino Al Cimino, between architecture history and legend, the Abbey overlooks the whole Village, also visible from Viterbo and beyond. Beautiful!!!
