San Domenico is a basilica church in Perugia, Umbria, central Italy. It is the largest religious building in the whole of Umbria.DescriptionThe church shows externally a late 16th century portal and a double Baroque staircase. The original building dates to 1304, and was constructed over a pre-existing one (known as San Domenico Vecchio), which had become inadequate after the growth of the Dominican Order. According to Giorgio Vasari, it was designed by Giovanni Pisano The church was consecrated in 1459. Based on the Hallenkirche northern-European scheme, it ruined in 1614-1615. The interior was thus renovated in 1629-1632 by Carlo Maderno, and shows similarities with the nave of St. Peter's Basilica, also by him, aside from the absence of windows. The new designed included a nave and two aisles.Of the original edifice, today the cloister (1455–1579) and a very large Gothic window (21 x 8.5 m) near the choir, executed by Bartolomeo di Pietro in 1411, remain. This window is also shown in a fresco now in the Palazzo dei Priori of Perugia. The bell tower was built in 1454-1500 by the Lombard architect Gasperino di Antonio. Originally it was taller than its current appearance, but it was later reduced for stability reasons.To visit Basilica di San Domenico on your trip to Perugia, use our Perugia holiday planner.

Как я понимаю, одна из самых больших в Перудже. Серого камня, 16 века. Внутри все аскетично - но привлекают яркие старинные витражи. И надгробье одного из Пап, умерших не своей смертьюAs I understand it, one of the biggest in Perugia. Grey stone, 16 century. Inside all ascetic-but attract bright vintage stained-glass Windows. And the gravestone of one of the popes, died with his deathshow original
La Chiesa è imponente, forse una delle più grandi della zona. L'interno colpisce meno. Attenzione agli orari, risulta chiuso durante il pranzo.The Church is impressive, perhaps one of the largest in the area. The Interior impresses less. Attention to the schedules, is closed during lunch.show original
