The Cathedral of San Lorenzo or the Cathedral of Tivoli was built in medieval times and is famous for its beautiful Romanesque bell tower 45 meters high. An ancient legend associates the construction of the cathedral to the Emperor Constantine, who reputedly built it over the ruins of the ancient Forum Tiburtino. The original apse is still visible on the outside of the religious building.

Inside the building there are three masterpieces: the “Gruppo Ligneo della Deposizione”- a masterpiece of Romanesque art dating from the thirteenth century, a silver case – embossed from the fifteenth century, and the “Triptych of the Saviour” – from the XII century.
