This is the largest church in the town and one with the most local ties as Fortunate was an Umbrian dear to Todian hearts. The church was built largely with local funds and encouragement and has an interesting interior with a few paintings of of note. The exterior facade remains unfinished as funds ran out back in history and other... More

When we visit churhes, we are looking for beauty and an education--how pretty is the church and its works of art and how well does the church tell its history. St. Fortunato is austere and bright on a sunny day--a kind of beauty--but there is little art and we found no educational materials. The Bell Tower (2 euros per person)... More

I can't believe this isn't already at the top of the list! The church itself is a wonderful space with a lovely facade in an imposing setting. But climb the tower and you get a 360degree view of Umbria. And once you've been up there you will spot Todi from miles around as the tower is the pinnacle of this... More

The church itself is a lovely, cool rather austere but elegant. However the highlight is the climb to the top of the bell tower and the views of Todi and the surrounding countryside. Worth the €2 and the climb tenfold!

In Todi you will see a church in every corner, but that's one of the most important. Close to the square, on top of the hill. Wonder.

Located a short walk away from the Piazza del Popolo, San Fortunato sits at the top of a winding flight of stairs. A blending of Gothic and Renaissance style, the incomplete facade has men and animals popping out of leaves carved around the portals. Sadly the church was not open so we were unable to view the frescoes by Masolino... More

Sadly the church does not live up to the location and we were very disappointed with the interior. Would not visit again

The myth says envious people from Orvieto blinded the architect of this church as the project of S Fortunato seemed to be better than the Duomo di Orvieto. The myth may not be true but this building is truly unique and, although the facade unfinished, it is a must see if you visit Todi

Get ready for a slight work-out,for it is reached by zigzag paths and broad tiers of stone steps set within neatly clipped and manicured hedges. The facade is unfinished: raw ,weathered bricks divide the upper from the lower part,whose arched central door is framed by clusters of spiral columns,with carvings of vines and human forms -whose richness and vigour are...

The art work around the entrance was fascinating when you learned the stories behind the figures. Hearing its history always makes a place much more impressive.
