“Wonderful Frescoes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2011

Visitors to Spoleto should not miss the Duomo. The frescoes in the apse (by Fra Lippo Lippi and others) portraying the life, death and ascension of Mary are amazing. Fascinating how the cathedral art has emphasized the story of Mary. There is also a side chapel (Eroli) that makes interesting use of trompe l'oeil and has another amazing fresco of Mary by Pinturicchio. The whole cathedral is a gem within a town that is itself one of the gems of Umbria.

“Beautiful Frescos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2011

Well worth a visit if you are in Spoleto. Beautiful frescos. Loved the little chapel at the top left hand side of the cathedral and also the beautiful chapel on the right hand side as you go in the main door. The piazza that the Duomo is situated in is really lovely.

“Some unique artwork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2008

You get a good view of the duomo, Cathedral of S. Maria Assunta, from the top of the steps leading into the piazza of the same name. The front is Romanesque and completed in the 1220's and inside, behind the alter is one of the first frescoes that incorporated depth perception, the colors are bright and beautiful (there is a box for coins to turn on the lights).

To the right of the main doors is an interesting chapel with some medieval frescoes depicting Bible characters.

The rose windows and carving in front of the church are unique.

If you enjoy art then this church is a must see.
