Great old church with interesting columns and some beautiful paintings. Interior is nicer than the exterior (they ran out of money and never finished the intended marble covering). Worth the visit but don't expect a whole lot.

This church has a amazing ceiling and great fresco over altar. Personally I found cathedral of S.Petro much more impressive, but this church is also very beautiful and worth to visit

Like many other churches in Italy the Duomo has an unfinished facade. On the left side you'll see a little pink and white decoration and a pulpit which gives you an idea of what should have been. The inside on the other hand is really beautiful and strikingly different from the interiors of many other churches in Italy. The frescoed... More

During the summer afternoons, the local people love to sit near and ply music and have a drink. Is windy and great during the summer and spring. The winter is a bit cold for me. But the view is great...

Cathedral of San Lorenzo in Perugia is not the best Cathedrals in Italy, but worth take a time to visit... Very old and interests, it's located in the old town, which will definitely visit.

We were here once, for organ concert. Acoustics were fantastic, to the goose skin. The interior of Duomo is rich and fabulous, especially paintings on the ceiling that from a certain angle look like sculptures!

There are more imposing, magnificent Cathedrals in Italy than this, but none where a visitor is more aware of the devotion of the people who come to pray and worship there, especially in the area round the Madonna delle Grazie. Aesthetically, the coffered ceiling and the polychrome columns along the central nave are particularly pleasing.

The artifact is beyond any expectation, but the church staff is really rude and they do hate everyone - not only tourist
