San Pietro, Perugia
Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Historic Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

What a beautiful cathedral, full of mosaics, with the whole church covered in art. Went there for Sunday Mass, officiated by the resident Bishop who was joined by a small by very enjoyable choir. The ... read more »
La chiesa è bellissima e suggestiva per quanto riguarda la parte interna. Si sono sovrapposte in maniera armoniosa differenti epoche storiche creando un insieme gradevole.

The degrees above the colonnades of the nave are boards that are dark and unreadable and need absolutely a restoration. The set outside and, especially, the portico of access are in a miserable what is not worthy of a city civil and noble which is Perugia. I was lucky enough to attend Sunday mass with the choir of the hours 11: the chorus and chants were absolutely extraordinary.show original

Mauro LibertucciThis 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 Visitshow original
