San Pietro, Perugia

(4.6/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • If you want to subscribe to the Faculty of agriculture necessarily have to see this wonder. Guarded by the Dominican fathers, the Cathedral of St. Peter was held as the remains are held, very few ceremonies, weddings only if you are of the place inside this church apart from the rest you can enjoy views of murals that bring back in time, the decoration of this church is poor almost to make it clear to those who visit that everything is value there. attend a wedding in this church is like being the first of the staircase in his humility this work is able to express class, elegance and austerity faith. Outside the church going behind (where not allowed) you can see the gardens of the fathers of this great treasure keepers kept them too with obsessive precision.

  • Unfortunately, I've seen this one only from outside but I heard from locals that it's enough beautiful inside 
  • A cathedral that it is impossible not to see. Inside is filled with paintings, one more beautiful than the other. The sacristy has several works to give away, not always open, ask to the sacristan, we did guide, very kind. Don't miss the crypt, recounts the origins of the Cathedral.

  • 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
