Foligno and the frescoes of Palazzo Trinci, a masterpiece of the Middle Ages – Private Tour

Foligno, an ancient town built in the middle of the&#xa0;Umbrian Valley, is traditionally considered the&#xa0;center of Italy&#xa0;and the world.<br><br>The town is characterized by&#xa0;amazing medieval palaces&#xa0;and fascinating churches, such as the Romanesque-style&#xa0;church of Santa Maria Infraportas&#xa0;and the&#xa0;Collegiate Church of San Salvatore, an ancient Benedictine abbey built from the 12th century in the present square called&#xa0;Piazza Garibaldi.<br><br>You will be then guided in the&#xa0;mainsquare&#xa0;of Foligno,&#xa0;Piazza della Repubblica, and you will visit the&#xa0;Cathedral of San Feliciano, characterized by its&#xa0;two magnificent facades&#xa0;and the mixture of styles belonging to different eras: Gothic, Romanesque, Baroque and Neoclassical.<br><br>Finally, you will admire the wonderful&#xa0;Palazzo Trinci, a&#xa0;medieval palace&#xa0;connected to the cathedral by a fascinating&#xa0;“suspension bridge”&#xa0;and built in the&#xa0;Gothic style&#xa0;in the early fifteenth century.

Lovely Cathedral built in the 12th century. Apparently declared unsafe because the roof was affested by the 2016 earthquake and restoration work has not even started!

Door on the main entrance shows the cathedral to be closed indefinitely due to earthquake damage. Hope that clarifies the confusion. Beautiful facade though.

Incredible from the outside. Unfortunately we have no idea what it looks like on the inside. No hours posted anywhere. We came back multiple times throughout the day and never got in

The cathedral was built in the 12th century, at the site of an earlier basilica, in a Romanesque style. It has two facades, the principal facing the Piazza Grande and the second overlooking the Piazza della Repubblica. It is a very nice sight with the typical stripes of white and pink stone, the nice mosaic, arches, rose windows and decorations. Sadly, it was severely damaged during the several earthquakes in the last twenty years, but the restoration works were very successful. The church is dedicated to the martyr Felician of Foligno, who was buried here in the 3rd century.

I was there for giosra della qunitana. I cannot imagine why, but the entrances were blocked off the entire weekend, Friday and Saturday anyway. I just got up and left Sunday morning. It looks nice on the outside, but there is no reason to specifically go to this church unless you are walking by, because as far as I can tell that is all you are able to do. However, I do suggest walking by to Palazzo Trinci.
