  • We didn't have a chance to visit it but simply to appreciate the wonderful facade along the way until Piazza Duomo

  • The Church of San Pietro extra moenia, spiritual place umbro Romanesque site in Spoleto, sits on the foot of the slopes of Monteluco and dominates the southern entrance to the city. Very good access to the square in front of the basilica by a 17th-century staircase that leads progressively road to admire the beautiful external portal. A well preserved facade, which is an example of the most beautiful Romanesque route in Europe, with all its figures and sculptural decorations that seem to almost be embroidered more than carved. Very nice and highly symbolic scenes depicting the religious life of the Saint and allegorical stories, drafts and revised by the medieval fiction. The Interior of the basilica instead is essential. There are two aisles with pillars supporting arches, marble tombstones dating back to different ages, a central altar bare and an elliptical Dome, unique architectural example of Umbria. The latter, with its distinctive shape, seal the solemnity of the stillness of the place, giving the entire environment the religious sense of ascensionalità in a surreal atmosphere quite impressive. Also nearby are absolutely unmissable San Ponziano and San Salvatore.

  • the Church is located on the lower slopes of Monteluco. Truly remarkable the finely carved stone façade product of late Romanesque. Are remarkable reliefs lining the median portal. scenes from the New Testament. The Interior was rebuilt in 1700.
