THE best church in Perugia. Very intimate, ancient pagan temple of atypical round shape. Essential and beautiful.

Simple and crude temple, yet overwhelming with elegance of form. Located peripherally to the old center therefore not invaded with tourists. I 'discovered' it when I was in Perugia for the second time and I made sure we go back there when we were there...More

Once you get away from the center, everything is quieter and more atmospheric, and this is a hidden gem just on the edge of the walled town. So much history in one small building. Free entry (open over lunchtime) and take a picnic and enjoy...More

beautiful and ancient, the Tempio di Sant'Angelo is near the University district, easily reached by walking. We visited on a Monday, and the site was filled with flowers. Interesting shape.

Beautiful old church on a hilltop, stunningly simple, good place for meditative thought. There is a tower nearby as well as an arch.

A little walk from the centre of the city but a worthy one. The church has a beautiful simplicity and is located in a stunning location. One of the highlights of our visit to Perugia.

In a place like Perugia where there are so many interesting churches (just think of Assisi) I'd still recommend going to this temple as it's unique because it's way older and because you'll have an interesting walk up there, seeing a beautiful part of the...More
