Tempio di Minerva information
The Tempio di Minerva, facing Piazza del Comune and Palazzo dei Priori, is now a church but retains its impressive pillared façade with six fluted columns dating back to Roman times. The turn-of-the-millennium pagan temple, dedicated to the goddess of peace, is featured as the backdrop to the Homage to the Simple Man fresco in the Basilica's upper church.
