About
The Cathedral, built at the behest of Saint Peter of Salerno, was completed in 1104 and dedicated to the Annunciation of the Virgin Mary (St. Maria Annunziata). The indoor space is divided into three naves. Interventions made during the XIII century have introduced Gothic architectural elements in the presbytery. Belonging to the above-mentioned century there are the remarkable Cosmatesque flooring, the Episcopal Chair, the Easter Candelabra and finally the wall paintings that represent the Virgin with her Child and St. Peter's head (this one, on the left pillar near the presbytery). The decorations in the apses go back to the XIX century. On the left wall of the Cathedral one can see the Lauri Chapel (XII century), the Baptistery and the Caetani Chapel (XIII century) holding an interesting Gothic funeral monument. On the right aisle there is the Raoli Chapel (XIX century). The Cathedral is open to the public year-round: NOVEMBER - MARCH 9.00am - 1.00pm / 3.00pm - 6.00pm APRIL - OCTOBER 9.00am - 1.00pm / 3.00pm - 7.00pm During the Mass visits are suspended.

Cathedral of historic importance
May 2019
We were not able to visit the crypt during our visit, but it was well worth exploring the cathedral. Our visit coincided with the lead up to a christening and it was delightful to observe a Special, traditional, extended Italian family gathering in such an historic church.
Check timings, so you can visit the crypt (unlike we did!)
I’ll have to come back...

The Cathedral is the centre of the city. Build with local stones is a XIII century Dome internally not decorated. The only decorated part is the chapel to be visited. External part is a superb view.

Anagni Dome

Surely eye-catching but too colorful in my opinion. A mixture of different styles and periods: from romanic to 1930s' make - up.

A wonderfull middle age city
Apr 2017 • Couples
If you want to spend two hours and pass in this old city you must exit on the speedway Fiuggi Anagni and arrive in ten minutes in this wonderfull city.
Was famous for the Popes, BonifacioVIII especially, and this Church is amazing even the museum but the flor of the Cathedral is incredible even the abside.

Exquisite, with an amazing history
Mar 2017 • Couples
This cathedral is simply magnificent. The tour is well worth the cost - the crypt, which is only lighted for 20 minutes each half hour, has incredible frescoes and an original Cosmati floor. I especially appreciated that the interpretive signs were in English as well as Italian. They describe the frescoes in detail so you know exactly what you are looking at. The church itself is also beautiful.

Do the complete museum tour, well worth it

The cathedral complex at Anagni is second to none: the magnificent romanesque building, the museum and the breathtaking crypt, much of it dedicated to St Thomas a Becket.

Very beautiful cathedral, made certainly better by the presence of the crypt (tickets extra). Nice cosmatesque floor.

Beautiful church connected with the museum next door. The museum is well worth the price to see the Crypt and the wonderful archeology!

Very spectacular place with special atmosphere.

The Anagni cathedral (with cripta) was a pearl of our last trip.
Because of 700 years of forgetfulness the cathedral area saved very good.
May be the museum was less interesting for us, but the architecture of this place is really great.
