It seems a bit hidden, but do go in to admire the beautiful 1504 fresco "the adoration of Magi" by the hand of Perugino in the side chapel of the brotherhood S. Maria dei Bianchi. Well worth admiring!

Along with three of his other works in the Cattedrale Santi Gervasio e Protasio, this is a must-see in the beautiful little city of Citta della Pieve.
