Benevento, near Chianchetella

Rocca dei Rettori brick detail: In many places in Benevento we saw bits and pieces of Roman brick and medieval masonry incorporated into the architecture, wherever they fit and turned every which way!

Benevento's Teatro Romano - not particularly well maintained but a remnant from its Roman past

Another detail of the 14th century fortress, the Rocca dei Rettori

Trajan's Arch built by the Romans in Benevento around 117 AD

The city's 8th century church, Santa Sofia
