Don’t Judge This Book By It’s Cover
Feb 2020 • Solo
Also known as Cattedrale di San Lorenzo, this unfinished church sits atop old Perugia at the far end of Corso Vannucci. The cathedral dates back to the late 1400’s. Although it’s exterior, in comparison with some of the grand Italian churches, may seem unimpressive, it’s stonework proved to be of interest. The interior is another story completely, featuring an intricately carved wooden choir, several impressive chapels, wonderful frescoes, soaring stone columns, a massive set of organ pipes at the altar and colorful stained glass windows.

Beautiful
Oct 2019 • Couples
Free to enter and well worth a visit. Very quiet with no queues. Beautiful stained glass windows and holds the wedding ring of the Virgin Mary , which unfortunately is only brought out once a year.

Large and imposing
Mar 2019 • Couples
The main entrance to this large and imposing cathedral is through the side door that faces the main square of Perugia. Since this is a university town, you will find many students hanging out on the steps before the main door. The interior is vast with huge columns supporting a massive interior. If in Perugia this is definitely worth stopping by, but as great cathedrals go, it is not in a league with Florence, Rome or Milan.

Beautiful, yet peaceful
Oct 2018 • Couples
The exterior of the cathedral is clearly unfinished, like many in central Italy, but the interior is quite breathtaking, especially on a sunny day with the light streaming through the stained glass windows.

It is worth a visit.

You can't miss this duomo as it is in the main square. As churches go, it is worth a visit but there is not much of note to see. It is big as befitting a duomo but certainly not breathtaking.

A respite for the footsore and weary
Jun 2018
If you are in Perugia the Duomo is a lovely place to take a break from the crowds and heat. Here you can sit and enjoy a quiet moment and view the various frescos painting and othr artifacts. Remember modesty now shorts or bare shoulders.

Unfinished outside, complete inside
Jun 2018 • Couples
Nothing Perugia seems quite planned properly. The cathedral butts onto other buildings and the brick facing is clearly rough and unfinished - after centuries. The effort went into the inner decorations. Be careful, it is closed for long lunch break.

Stunning interior
Apr 2018 • Couples
The sheer raw size of the Duomo is overwhelming. We took time to study the architecture and the plays of light in the interior. It was also a welcome relief from a hot day. Whitebeard83
