An exquisite painted church in beautiful condition

This church is a gem. If you're lucky enough to be there for the Xmas or Easter concerts, with an overflowing audience, and beautiful night lighting, you will never forget it.

We were not prepared for the beauty of this church. It is truly lovely. In addition, the medicinal garden is a great place for a relaxing look at the lowlands beyond. See this church is you see any in Perugia.

A lovely very old church in the university area of Perugia. Inspiring by its elegant courtyard and entry.

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever been to and it is for free. Every inch is painted and just so serene. There is a lovely little garde behind it which is part of the college there.

What a surprise this was! Richly decorated church, every inch of wall was painted! There weren't many visitors, so it was easy to look around. It was a nice walk a little out of the city as well with surrounding gardens.

This church has to be visited - great architecture, mixture of construction styles and beautiful interior. Already when you enter the yard you can enjoy the arcaded sidewalk and than the most beautiful church in Perugia.

One of the oldest church in this town, with all the paintings and the golden elements saved from the wars and the plunders, with also a mystic garden on the back side.

I loved this Basilica. I found it interesting and less visited than the other sites in Perugia. The Basilica from the outside doesn't seem as grand as the other Basilica's you would find in Italy. However, once inside, I found all the frescos, sculptures and paintings amazing. I'm not a huge art lover, but I couldn't help going over each... More

What a stunning cathedral in the centre of town. It is lovely to visit all cathedrals where you are as they are all different. San Pietro is awe inspiring.

So said by the Peruvians themselves, the church is really beautiful, the choir, the paintings, the ceiling, specially the painting over the entrance door, where from afar you can see the eyes of the devil looking at you! Amazing!
