San Pietro, Perugia
(4.6/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Admire the collection of religious masterpieces at San Pietro, whose origins can be traced back to the 10th century. Over time, disasters like fires and earthquakes have destroyed parts of the building, and three architects have rebuilt it. Today the sturdy structure houses fine paintings from old masters and a beautiful 13th-century wood carving fresco called "Crocifisso fra la Madonna e S. Giovanni Evangelista." Ascend the bell tower--the second-tallest tower in town--to see the large bell and to enjoy views over the city. Put San Pietro into our Perugia itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I thought I was entering a Cathedral with no ifs or buts is instead I discovered a marvel. I pretty much walked looking up and mouth open all the time. Handy eye masterpieces. From there again definitely.

  • I would say that I liked most of the duomo Cathedral downtown. It's basically a picture gallery. Not to be missed! The road is made by x get there isn't much to look at but offers glimpses from photos.

  • This Cathedral is a must visit! Personally I find it extraordinary, well represents the historical and cultural attraction of Perugia, as there are paintings and works of different epochs and cultures but well associated with each other. It is also interesting to visit the University and especially the medieval kitchen garden

  • Spectacular Basilica! If you pass to the Department of Agriculture have to visit absolutely. Beautiful paintings, black marble columns and a very quiet place. There is also no surprise that concerns just painted ip revenue above you.

  • This basilica is truly a remarkable, perhaps not all that inside as well as Europe's largest canvas of about 90 meters represented the Benedictine order (that view as a whole conceals the eyes of Satan) there is the possibility to fall below the floor where there is an early Christian Temple Church discovered thanks to the stubbornness of a priest now deceased who made the unlikely your digs. Behind the wooden inlaid Choir (a masterpiece) then there are a number of ports that if facing extraordinary damage open where you can see as many as five regions of Italy. The acoustics of the basilica is outstanding and inside and present an organ is one of the oldest extant and functioning. Among the various works of art there is a painting by tintoretto a whole series of paintings of the painter said the alien chicca finale outside there is a representation of God with the face of a woman!!! Who in the past had even been covered by Church me now always unearthed by the tenacity of the priest who now runs the basilica (a real well of science!) We would have to say a lot more but worth the view alone Visit
