  • A jewel in the country gem. The Church is beautiful but the Capella Baglioni is simply gorgeous!!! The cycle of paintings by Pinturicchio breathless for colours and details (too bad not being able to photograph).

  • You can't photograph a religious place in 2017 now think it's for nothing. Controversy aside it is a beautiful church that fills the town of Spello. Truly an art and full of silence.

  • Spello is known, not only for the beauty of its historical centre (which would deserve a visit), for a work of art, the cycle of life of Jesus painted by Pinturicchio in the Baglioni Chapel of Santa Maria Maggiore, in pure Renaissance style. The Church itself, except for the Chapel, is interesting but not extraordinary, with medieval and Renaissance Baroque additions very altered by character (notable, however, the ciborium in solid gray stone). Part of the building cannot be used for security reasons linked to the recent earthquakes. To visit the Baglioni Chapel, we require a 2-euro contribution: to date, you can stay (although the paintings you see pretty well even if you don't cross the entrance to the chapel). But in my case the problem, it seems strange to say, was how to pay: in fact you have to let the two euro to a gentleman who would be stationed in the little shop of souvenirs inside the Church. It should, given that during my visit this gentleman did nothing but stroll through the aisle, chatting amiably tacked on to your mobile phone with the hat on. I should perhaps wait for the good man to end the phone call to pay and enter in the Chapel? No thanks, I had to do was what I saw from the outside. Reflection: instead of formalised both the required behavior for visitors, it might take a serious attitude and respectful even custody personnel of churches or other places of interest.

  • Definitely have to go into see the painting inside the church... That's the highlight
  • Works beautiful. The Baglioni chapel was painted by Pinturicchio, while on the pillars you can admire frescoes by Perugino.

  • Very beautiful church as well as throughout the country!

  • Vantage point not really characteristic, though it helps to describe the location.
