  • Never miss this small place, fantastic fresco
  • Beautiful old church. The oratory is best known for its late Gothic style fresco cycle (1416) by the brothers Lorenzo and Jacopo Salimbeni. Brothers Lorenzo Salimbeni (1374-c1418) and Jacopo Salimbeni (c.1370/80 - after 1426) were Italian medieval painters representative of International Gothic style.
  • Impressive.
  • Exquisite fresco cycle.
  • Place not to be missed if you pass to Urbino. Very nice little streets to get to the oratory. Very beautiful views and view from the stairs of St. John. Of Course The strong piece consists of the beautiful frescoes that must be seen absolutely. 5 stars!
