Very simple church that likely gets missed by most tourists. Stunning barrel vaults. The remaining frescoes are still bright. Would likely be cold even on a hot sunny day.

t is an old church in the center square of the city. There is a sacred atmosphere in the interior. Tourists do not seem to have visited so much.

Interesting church but lacking the artwork and interesting features of other churches in Orvieto. Worth seeing if you have time.

This church sits on top of a Etruscan temple which is said to be the birthplace of Orvieto before Christ. The area was destroyed by the Romans and later this church built

Next to the town hall is this church with a beautiful cascade and it's 12 sided tower. In the basement are what remains of ancient Etruscan and Roman buildings and an early Christian church. This is very interesting, but only seen by a private tour....More

You will probably pass this church if you walk down the Corso Cavour, it's near the center of town. The church is beautiful and historic but even better is the tour of the extensive ancient remains beneath the church, conducted by an English-speaking Italian archeologist....More

Another church in Italy. The tower is what I liked most with its unusual 12 sided shape. The outside is rather plain but nice. It is a good example of medieval architecture. The inside is also rather plain but it does have some nice frescoes.
