Perugia is a typical medieval town, even if the original urban layout is etruscan and the historic center is located on the back of a hill. Known as the “Green heart of Italy”, it is also a cultural and artistic centre which hosts several annual events, such as the Eurochocolaste Festival, and one of the oldest university city in Italy. It is full of inspiring scenes, buildings, churches, gates and charming squares, and worth adding to your itineray if you want to explore other hill towns in Umbria such as Gubbio and Assisi.
It is a fortress in the historical centre of Perugia, built in 1540 under the Pope Paul III Farnese. Symbol of papal power, today it is a tourist attraction that hosts several cultural events.
The square has always been the pivot point of Perugia, surrounded by the most important monuments and buildings from Palazzo dei Priori to Fontana Maggiore and the Cathedral of St. Lawrence.
It is one of the seven entrance gates to Perugia, built in the III century BC by the Etruscans. The entrance is surmounted by two round arches, one above the other.
It is an imposing cathedral constructed between 1345 and 1490, and dedicated to St. Lawrence. The façade is plain with few small openings. The interior was built in late Gothic style.
