  • This church is located slightly outside the town of Foligno but doesn't make it any less interesting. Very particularly the Romanesque structure (1,100). Dedicated to Saint Mary, Peter and Paul

  • It was a small parish in early 1100, built on a 400-year-old chapel dedicated to Saint Peter, Saint Paul and Maria Assunta. The chapel was incorporated within the left aisle. Small, inspired by the recollection. Beautiful frescoes that remained visible. It had to be beautiful when it was painted. The pink and white stone and the entrance is preceded by a portico with three arches supported by four columns with Romanesque capitals. The floor of the porch and that of the Church are lower than at street level. The rectangular plan is divided into three naves by columns with the nave, higher. All-seeing, one by one, the frescoes and are between the 1300 and 1600. The wooden statue of the Madonna is oldest Romanesque, dating from around 1100. The name derives from the fact that originally stood outside the walls of Defense, but when a second wall was built was in the midst of them, and then took the name of "infra portas".

  • Among the churches of Foligno, certainly the most beautiful and well taken care of. The frescoes of great value require urgent restoration and better lighting. Intelligent and appropriate combination of modern and ancient. We visited the Church we too on August 16 but just before the 13 was closing we then returned at 15.30 and calmly we could admire its beauty photographing the frescoes, invited by keeper with very gracefully not to use flash.
