Sant'Agata de' Goti is a comune (municipality) and former Catholic bishopric in the Province of Benevento in the Italian region Campania, located about 35 km northeast of Naples and about 25 km west of Benevento near the Monte Taburno.
It was a Latin rite bishopric from 969.05.26 as Diocese of Sant’Agata de’ Goti until its 1986 suppression and merger into the Diocese of Cerreto Sannita–Telese–Sant’Agata de’ Goti, which adopted its title and retained its cathedral as Co-cathedral Concattedrale di S. Maria Assunta.
- Cathedral (Duomo), founded in the 10th century, dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. Due to the repeated reconstruction, little remains of the original edifice. The Romanesque crypt shows parts which could belong to several pre-existing buildings, including Roman or earlier ones.
- Church of Santa Menna (10th century).
- Castle, used as Ducal Palace.
- Palace and church of St. Francis (1282).
- Gothic church of the Annunziata (13th century). It houses 15th-century frescoes, and a diptych of the Annunciation dating to the same age.
- The Council Room in City Hall was decorated in 1899 by Vincenzo Severino.
