This is a grand cathedral--with amazing art, frescoes, and beautiful little side chapels. Pay attention to the shrine to the Madonna--if you walk around it, you will find many milagros (silver medals that correspond to particular prayers) layered inside old wood frames.A good place to meditate, pray, and light a candle.

Unfortunately, the French looted and never returned the church's most famous work of art, but there is still a gorgeous Barocci deposition and a sweet fresco of some of the local saints by one of Perugino's students. Otherwise, the artwork is mediocre. However, for the fan of Caravaggio, the church has several paintings by one of his biographers/rivals, the one... More

Not as impressive as many of these kinds of churches are. A bit dark in the interior. Height of ceiling is impressive. Decorations not particularly memorable.

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

We went and is was very dark and hard to see the art work not overly impressed but if in the piazza go in side and walk around... More

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.
