It seems a bit hidden, but do go in to admire the beautiful 1504 fresco "the adoration of Magi" by the hand of Perugino in the side chapel of the brotherhood S. Maria dei Bianchi. Well worth admiring!

It's worth calling in to see the Adoration of the Magi by Perugino. The painted landscape is the world around you in this part of Umbria and the colours and clarity of the portraits are brilliant. Supposedly, Perugino's face is amongst them.
