Cathedral Of San Lorenzo Reviews & Ratings
Beautiful Cathedral certainly worth visiting. Well preserved interior. Lots of ornamentation.
Baroque style with a very stunning affresco ceiling. Worth a visit given that in Perugia there is not much to see.
Stunning city, well worth a visit
Magnificent cathedral. The paints in the roof are a work of art. Is the most important church in Perugia and is very impressive. Also, it is located in the Piazza IV November, near other landmarks of the city.
Very beautiful from the inside, a must see if you are around. Mind the opening hours for public: 8:00-12:30 and 16:00-18:45 all the time and there is some additional time depending on the season. You are not allowed to take pictures inside and have to wear proper clothes. Maybe.
