  • Very beautiful and impressive this Porta San Pietro, from whose name derives from the homonymous Church within easy reach, just a pity that it is blurred in its beauty, from around parked cars and traffic flowing. Medieval door, inserted into the walls from the 13th-14th century, the exterior façade recalls the most famous Etruscan arch, and has a composition almost vaguely. Unlike the inner side, the most hidden, that which doesn't face towards St Peter's Church, which preserves a 14th-century appearance, with an arch surmounted by a niche with a 19th century painting depicting the Madonna of the Rosary with Saints Dominic and Francis. Inside the door, there is a 13th century chapel, incorporated into the Door.

  • Ancient door which opens onto streets uphill, great for taking photos, I made some gorgeous white/black.

  • The doors of Perugia are distinguished from each other. This presents a Medieval Renaissance façade and the inner side, performed by Agostino di Duccio and Parkes on drawing inspiration albertiana. Started in via Cavour
