Veroli (Latin: Verulae) is a town and comune in province of Frosinone, Lazio, central Italy.

History[edit]

Veroli became a Roman municipium in 90 BCE. It became the seat of a bishopric in 743 CE, and was occupied by Spanish milices, allied to the Colonna family, in the 16th troops.

Main sights[edit]

Veroli retains elements of its ancient polygonal nucleus, especially near the summit of the hill, later occupied by a medieval castle. The Cathedral's treasury contains the breviary of St. Louis of Toulouse, and some interesting reliquaries, one in ivory with bas-reliefs, and two in the Gothic style, of silver gilt.

Near Veroli is the Gothic Abbey of Casamari.
