It was the last Basilica I visited in Perugia. So beautiful and full of famous paintings inside in the Basilica and in the corner room the Sacristy. You will find several Caravaggio paintings and one Raphael’s painting “Jesus and John the Baptist”. It is in...More

The Cathedral of San Pietro is a beacon on the skyline of Umbria. You can see the bell tower from miles away. It is outside the city

What a beautiful cathedral, full of mosaics, with the whole church covered in art. Went there for Sunday Mass, officiated by the resident Bishop who was joined by a small by very enjoyable choir. The Church is simply Spectacular, surrounded by gardens and lecture halls....More
