The hill where the Cathedral presently rises was inhabited by the Etruscans. The settlement was then destroyed by the Romans approximately in 310 b.C.
During the Middle Ages, the city spread out considerably, thanks to the building of wall enclosures that are a peculiar feature still today. That period was also dominated by civil strife and by the conquest of the town by Frederick I Barbarossa in 1170.
In the following years, the city witnessed the political struggle between Guelphs and Ghibellines, and then was unespectedly beseiged by emperor Frederick II, on whom it had to wage war harshly.
Albornoz FortressIt seems that Cardinal Raniero Capocci, helped by the young woman who was later canonized with the name of St. Rosa, incited people to revolt.
The period of splendour for Viterbo was the second half of the Thirteenth century, when noble palaces, churches and typically Mediaeval fountains were built, the built-up area was sizeably spread and the city was chosen as a papal seat, as popes were forced to flee from the fiery atmosphere of Rome.
A few popes were elected in Viterbo, including Gregory X, Nicholas III and Martin IV. The latter brought the papal seat back to Rome in 1281.
During the Renaissance, the Farneses changed Italy's political framework and were able to reach the apex of splendour and power, as they established a self-governing State, free from the Church rule, the Dukedom of Castro, under their own guidance.
