Palace of the Popes - ViterbornrnYesterday I had planned to return to Viterbo, after many years, unfortunately it was not possible for me, I was consoled by looking at old scans.rnThe Palazzo dei Papi in Viterbo was built on commission by Raniero Gatti in 1266 in order to offer the popes who were guests of the city a safe home. This decision coincided with the initiative undertaken in 1257 by Alexander IV who, worried about the political instability present in Rome, considered it appropriate to transfer the papal see to a city where it was easier to reorganize the Guelph resistance.
