Perugino and Pinturicchio frescoes
Oct 2019
The Baglioni family, nobles of Spello, commissioned the frescoes to both artists.]These are breathtakingly beautiful and visible close up. Some resoration work is still being carried out as the church was hit by the 2016 earthquake.

Under Repair
Oct 2019 • Couples
Currently under repair inside but honestly I don’t mind paying three Euros per person to help in the restoration. We need to help preserve stuff like this. Incredibly gorgeous inside

Stunning, up close
Jul 2019 • Solo
Chapel is so accessible, can walk right up to frescoes for detailed viewing. Able to walk on protected tile floor for exceptional vantage point.

Church closed until October 2018
Jun 2018 • Solo
This is a wonderful church, but if you are going to Spello to see the Perugino and Pintoricchio artwork inside, be advised that the church is closed for reconstruction until "at least" October 2018.

One of the world's great art treasures

Umbria is full of wonderful art but this is a must see. The Pintoricchio frescoes are wonderful in both their execution and the stories they tell.

MUST SEE!
Apr 2017
If you're a fan of medioeval paintings (like Botticello) you must see this chappel of PINTURICCHIO, Italian Early Renaissance (ca.1454-1513)! It costs 2 Euro for adults but it's absolutely woth it!! Free parkings are downhill.

What a Magical Treat!
Jun 2016 • Couples
Unexpected pleasures are always the sweetest and (while we were expecting Spello to be the gloriously beautiful village that it is), we had not expected the magnificence of this artwork. And so much the sweeter that we could enjoy it all on our own.

Absolutely gorgeous
Dec 2014 • Solo
Unlike the previous reviewer I had no objection at all to paying a little to be able to see inside the chapel. It was only two euros, I think. The person who opened it was friendly and informative.

The frescoes are not only absolutely gorgeous in a decorative, artistic sense, but also full of absorbing detail, meaning and human sympathy, and deserve plenty of time. If possible read something about them before you go in.

Various books are on sale next to the chapel. I bought one on Pinturicchio. I think perhaps I should also have bought one on just these frescoes.

No photographs allowed. Good.

art should be free and open all day
Aug 2013 • Couples
The Cappella Baglioni should be open to visitors from 9-18:00 and free to visit. Many people come from all over the world to see one of the only important works of art in Spello, and to find it closed is a shame.
