Among these, it is impossible not to include the Cathedral of San Francesco d'Assisi in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II: in Baroque style, it is the bishop's seat (diocese of Civitavecchia-Tarquinia).

The center of the city is surrounded by medieval walls, and on it opens the so-called passage of the Arch, a gateway to the ancient wall dating back to the 9th century.

Also in the port area it is possible to identify several important architectural works. The most significant are undoubtedly the Michelangelo Fort, the Vanvitelli Fountain and the Antemurale Cristoforo Colombo, a dam erected to defend the port basin from the waves.
