You can't miss this church as you're walking in the city center. Please take a few minutes to view the various paintings.

A Must to visit this Place! As very Special of this cathedral is the fully painted ceiling. Not often seen in Italy. It also shows the history of over 500 years of that building. A big Match to your Town visit of Perugia.

The Cattedrale di San Lorenzo is a major landmark in Perugia, construction of the building was commenced in 1345 and completed in 1490. Taking a closer look at the exterior walls you can see that the final laying of the white and pink marble was never completed, there is only a small section completed. Entry into the Cathedral is via... More

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.

This cathedral is a great example of italian gothic ones and is absolutely beautiful. Once a year is exposed there the Sacro Anello, a sacred ring that supposedly belonged to the Virgin Mary.

Atop the hill in its central square lies this impressive cathedral. A must see if in Perugia, which is a charming town to visit - especially during the annual chocolate festival!

A truly original and dynamic cathedral filled with iconic art and silence (though the regular beggars around the entrance are a bit offputting). great beauty and architectonic originality reinforced by it sharing one of the grand medieval piazzass anywhere with neighbouring palazzos, guildhalls etc outstanding in their own right. The very HEART of Perugia. take your time to sit on... More
