Worth the walk!

A wonderful walk up to this lovely Basilica. Nobody else was walking, they were all driving so missed half the fun!

Learn the story of the Ceri
Aug 2020 • Family
The basilica is very nice for its position. The architecture is quite simple but it interesting to learn the story of the Ceri that are conserved in the basilica.

Quick look
Oct 2019
Take a quick look once you arrive by a funicular. Yes, it is a nice medieval place with a well in the center. Depends how many you saw before.

Ubaldo in Chubbio
Jun 2019 • Couples
Chubbio is a nice medieval town. A lot of old buildings and small streets are well preserved. From one stairs to another you climb up to the Basilica of Sant'Ubaldo. You can also take the elevator partly. And finally by 'hanging in a cage on a cable' :-)
The Basilica is quite sober, but worth visiting for the shrine of St. Ubaldo. And it's quiet up there.

Top of Gubbio
Mar 2019 • Couples
We reached the Abby by funicular plus stairs and path at top of hill. Interesting place houses body of City’s patron saint. At top we noticed a car road and a couple of parked cars so there appears to be a different way to get there. Funicular is more fun, though.

Nice enough church, great location
Mar 2019 • Friends
The church itself is nice enough without being anything special.

But the location is wonderful, on the hill with a great view over Gubbio and the surrounding countryside.

You can there & back by the funicular (€4 single, €6 return) or by a walk along the wide path - or of course a mixture, as we did.

The main Basilica home of the patron saint
Aug 2018 • Friends
This is the main Basilica in Gubbio that hosts the embalmed body of the patron Saint Sant'Ubaldo and the 3 big ceri used for the corsa on the 15th of May. A must visit

Maybe I have missed something
Oct 2018 • Friends
The climb was amazing. But the basilica was not up the the other constructions/buildings in Gubbio. Maybe I needed to walk around more or missed something...

Wonderful at sunset
Sep 2018 • Friends
Interesting church which tell the story of St Ubaldo and houses the the Ceri. It’s fun to take the lift up to the church which is perched high above the town. Views at sunset are wonderful.

Recommendable.
Jul 2018 • Couples
The Basilica of Sant'Ubaldo is a Roman Catholic church atop Mount Ingino, outside central Gubbio in Umbria, Italy.
The church houses the body of the patron saint of Gubbio, Saint Ubaldo (the 12th-century Bishop Ubaldo Baldassini), kept atop the main altar on a marble plinth, surmounted by a glass case.
The church and adjacent convent were originally built in the first decade of the 1500s by Canons Regular of the Lateran.
Once rich in stucco decoration from the Baroque era, much of this decoration was destroyed during bombing during the second world war, and the interior was reconstructed.
The church is accessible through a long, winding trail from the city or a more adventurous chair-lift ride.
