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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
