House of the Bishop

Along Via Santa Maria you will find on the left the so-called “Bishop's House” so called perhaps because it was the residence of the bishop of Bagnoregio during his pastoral visits.
The building, built between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, stands on a profferlo staircase in peperino, which rests on a round arch, on which the balcony develops. On the balustrade stands a peperino column with a molded capital, to which the richly sculpted supporting column of the arch corresponds at the bottom. On the left, going up the stairs, there is a small window, while two entrance doors overlook the balcony. The two doors are surmounted by two round arches with a ring in relief. Next to the first door, inserted into the wall, is a peperino ashlar. The first and second levels are separated by a string course on which there are four windows, two of which have been filled in.
Higher still is the last level with a single window in the center of the facade.
The round arch, which supports the landing, has a deep barrel vault and shows on the left a column with a capital worked in bas-relief.
The right side has buttresses, also worked in bas-relief, with geometric decorations also present on the upper molded frame.
The pillar has two faces differently worked in bas-relief and on the external one it is possible to recognize the reproduction of a twisted column with a decorated capital. The right side has buttresses, also worked in bas-relief, with geometric decorations also present on the upper molded frame.
On the wall along the staircase is a trefoil window with ferrule and piers made of peperino ashlars and with a floral decoration applied in the center.
