This large Roman Catholic church was built in the 13th century. It is set on a high point in the town of Todi and has an impressive set of very wide stairs with crouching lions at either end leading up to it. The interior is...More

Amazing architecture with a simplistic beauty. Amazing how each of these churches have their own style. Free admission so if you’re in Todi for the day it’s worth checking out

I’m sorry to say that no music was playing when we visited. Visual aspects of the visit were disappointing. The church at one time had many frescoes decorating it’s side chapels. Some are now completely gone only a few still are largely present though in...More

One might think this would be a protestant church looking at the very simple interior with few decorations, absence of colorful stained glass and quiet atmosphere. The church building has both roman and gothic character. High above even the top square, it provides a magnificent...More

The view from the top of the tower in the church is worth every euro. You get a 360 degree view of Todi and the tile roofs everywhere. It's truly one of the best views in all of Umbria. But hurry because they aren't open...More

The exterior of this church is less than promising. it was begun in the thirteenth century by the Franciscans but a devastating outbreak of plague meant that there was neither money nor artizans to complete it. Do not miss however, the playful elegance of the...More

Approach is via two steep flights of steps, zig-zag paths with steps, then two more flights of steps - but it's well worth the effort of getting there! The entrance deserves close study - the detailing in the stonework is well preserved, quite witty in...More

The church is humble but has a rich history. The tomb of Jacapone is downstairs but the view from the tower is unrivalled in Todi. You can see for miles and get a great perspective of Todi.
