The Romanesque facade alone is worth crossing the highway for. The iconography of the facade is rather obscure - and we'd recommend taking a guidebook that explains each of the panels with you to work your way through the various stories. There are series of animal tales - which are intended as moral tales. We would suggest that you bring a guide - or look online for more detailed explanations.

The church was built on the slops of the hill at the foot of Monteluco di Spoleto at the beginning of the fifth century, as a bishops’ cemetery, and it went through a series of interventions. In the 12th century the present facade was made with the marvelous reliefs illustrating the scenes from the life of the apostle and moralistic messages taken from the medieval stories. The approach to the church via a large 17th century staircase is a nice experience itself. The interior of the church is very elegant in the Baroque style with an elliptical dome, unique in Umbria. The church is among the most beautiful religious buildings of Umbria!

We love Spoleto, a great base for exploring Umbria. Our third trip there in 4 years. I've passed by this very, old church many times since it's right off the main road and opposite of the turn of Spoleto South that takes one into the old town. This time, I decided to stop in- easy to do and rewarding.

Short road up to the church. Check out, as others have said the outside façade and big circular window, a simpler version of Orvieto's duomo. Atmospheric and cool inside. I love old churches, and Spoleto's loaded with them.

This basilica, accessed by car or by hiking from the aqueduct, as we did, is impressive in its size, in the stories told by its carvings in the stone facade, and in its interior decor.

We walked here from our apartment then walked thru the woods to the aquaduct and walk across the aquaduct to La Rocca and have a coffee at the little trattoria.

The basilic is an historical place worth a visit but the basements are gorgeous. No need to visit the crypt. The first church is the piece not to miss

the church is high up a stone stairway. it-s quite impressive when arriving by car from Rome in the evening. The inside is not that great but the facade with its marble reliefs is really unique and deserves a visit.

We are not "churchy" types, even in Italy but this one is out of the ordinary in its stunning yet simple beauty. We actually returned twice to enjoy the peace and spirituality.

At the top of a long stairway, the facade of San Pietro is covered with remarkable Romanesque sculptures - wild and domestic animals, saints and stories.
