Situated on Corso Garibaldi, it is a very old church.All is different than the others churches. It is builded on an old etruscan temple. From the 5th century there was a Christian church, the oldest church of Perugia.

This church is very plain, but so quiet and lovely. It was wonderful to sit and watch the play of light and enjoy the silence. The walk to and from is interesting and gives one a different perspective on Perugia.

Every time I go to Perugia, I visit this church. It is always quiet. You can sit and pray in very spiritual space, undisturbed. It is quite simple and brings your mind back to the early centuries of Christianity, rather than the overpowering decoration of later periods of church architecture and art. A quiet stroll up Corso Garibaldi will lead you there. If you feel energetic you can also go into the Torre nearby and see the museum which shows you all the changing walls from Etruscan and Roman to medieval. T

For me this church was just OK-I like over the top, marble, a symphony of angels, paintings, stucco and to be surrounded by relics, gold and saints; this has none of that! It is, as advertised very simple. However I did enjoy the walk there very much. From the center, walking along Via Battisti was beautiful with great views going downhill then going up hill through the neighborhood on Via Garibaldi; this made the visit worthwhile in addition to climbing the tower of Cassero di Porta S. Angelo. Otherwise, if you need a city escape and some quite time with out glitz and glamour, this is your place. Gratis entry.

Head a little way out of the city centre to find this ancient building, once a roman temple, now a church. It's small and somewhat plain but with terrific atmosphere. Next to the museum of the medieval walls. Lovely views everywhere.
