Perugia Cathedral, Perugia

4.3
Perugia Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Perugia, Umbria, central Italy, dedicated to Saint Lawrence. Formerly the seat of the bishops and archbishops of Perugia, it has been since 1986 the archiepiscopal seat of the Archdiocese of Perugia-Città della Pieve.HistoryFrom the establishment of the bishopric, a cathedral existed in Perugia in different locations, until, in 936-1060, a new edifice, corresponding to the transept of the present cathedral, was built here. The current cathedral, dedicated from the beginning as the Cathedral of San Lorenzo and Sant'Ercolano dates from a project of 1300 by Fra Bevignate that was initiated in 1345 and completed in 1490. The external decoration in white and pink marble lozenges (adapted from Arezzo Cathedral) was never completed; a trial section can still be seen on the main façade.

  • Impressive and flashy, but from the outside it doesn't really stands out because it doesn't square surrounded by buildings makes it stand out at best but is worth a visit. Free entrance and inside the Church faith (wedding ring). It is not, in my opinion, the most beautiful monument of the city, but is placed in a very special setting like that of Piazza IV Novembre (near the Fontana Maggiore and the Palazzo dei Priori) and is definitely worth a visit.

  • The Church of San Lorenzo is an important place of worship. The outside looks almost blend into the rest of the square, a building still very nice and just as important. Very well maintained. The Interior a bit dark but we immediately see its Majesty. It is well worth a visit. Free entrance

  • Impressive in parts but not overwhelming. There are a handful of interesting artworks but the overall feeling in the interior is far less impressive than the Duomo’s piazza facade.
  • Has the best stained glass I've ever seen.
  • Absolutely beautiful. Buildings that carries history in it. This is located on a big cobblestone Street that is very popular in Perugia.
  • A "must visit' for Perugia
