Easy to find it on the Piazza Raffaello. The 14th century chapel contains a fresco whose upper section was painted by Raphael between 1505 and 1508. It depicts the Trinity (the figure of the Father is lost) surrounded by saints and angels. The lower part...More

To his credit the ticket seller did try to give us a discount on the ticket price of 4 euro per person but didn't warn us that it is a one room and one painting attraction. The audio guide was informative and lessened the feeling...More

See the Raffello alfresco in this beautiful little church . Up a small hill past the cathedral . Entrance was free. Truly worth seeing . Afterward walk up to ports sole for a great view of Perugia and the Umbrian hillside

This is a charming and quick little thing to do in Perugia. The Raphael fresco in San Severo has not fared well over the last 600 years, and is quite badly damaged in parts. But, it is still an early Raphael and his genius can...More

If you compare this fresoc to the last supper Fresco in Milan, this is not really worth the trouble visit. The fee 3 euro's isn;t well spent. The painting isn't preserved well and the guide only has a very brief intoduction on this piece of...More

This is one for the art historian. My wife is an artist and thought the entry price was well worthwhile, I am not and didn’t. There is so much wonderful art available elsewhere in Perugia. It would have been more interesting if there had been...More

Take a quick trip into this little church and gaze at a painting from one of the most well-known artists in history. Won't take too much time out of your day, only a short walk from the main piazza, and it's definitely worth your time.

If you appreciate Raphael's work, you will probably be happy. If you are a sight-seeing tourist, you might be disappointed if your group pays €3 a head to see this one partially restored artwork. Tip: if you are going to go in as a family...More

Part of the fun of this place, is you feel like you're discovering something others have not. It's in the "back" of old town Perugia. One of the greatest artists to ever live, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, painted the top section of a fresco in...More
