The town is especially known as the birthplace of Saint Jerome.
Ego enim non solum fateor, sed libera voce profiteor, me in interpretatione Graecorum, absque Scripturis sanctis, ubi et verborum ordo mysterium est, non verbum e verbo, sed sensum exprimere de sensu. Saint Jerome/San Gerolamo/S. Hieronymus
