Beautiful wooden doors at the entrance and white marble stairs leading to the altar
May 2019 • Couples
Situated in the Piazza Filippo Silvestri, which is Bevagna's main piazza, this church has beautiful old carved wooden entrance doors under an ornate marble archway. The most striking aspect as you enter the church is the elevated altar which sits some 12 white marble steps higher than the church floor. There are two columns of arches on either side of the church, which are supported by columns of pale pink stone. There must have been a wedding in the church recently, because there were bunches of gypsophila tIed onto the ends of alternate pews. This was a lovely light-filled space.

Free Admission

With some many churches in Europe charging to see inside it’s nice to see one with free admission. Incredible architecture and some amazing paintings on the ceilings. Worth checking out if your in town for the day. Only need around 10-15 minutes to see the whole inside

Very basic..

We walked around Bevagna before our lunch and wine tasting. The church is nice on the outside but very basic and boring inside.

Somewhat empty

Not much inside this beautiful old church but very spectacular from the outside with its square tower. Visited by Prince Charles after the earthquake but that does not seem to have helped much!

Stripped and impersonal.
Aug 2015 • Couples
Another of Bevagna's Romanesque buildings, stripped of ornament and furnished with poor quality modern replacements. How wonderful it would be to see the great Renaissance art of Umbria restored to the places they were designed for and not filling the exeptional museums. Share the wealth !

Another beautiful feature of Bevagna
Jul 2015 • Friends
This church was featured on one of the old Lire notes and was visited by Prince Charles after the 1997 earthquake. It is beautiful in its simplicity with its tower to the front and side. The inside is very interesting as you decend adown to the crypt. The church just sits observing the square and all its varied activities. A gem not to be missed. Best shots from the steps of the theatre opposite.

A mix of Roman and Medieval
Sep 2014 • Couples
Built by the same architects, Brunello and Ridolfo as the Chiesa di San Silvestro opposite. The portal is a great example of how Bevagna’s medieval builders made use of the earlier Roman structures. Fragments of the facade of a Roman temple were reworked to create these medieval motifs and reliefs. Look especially for the aforementioned carving of St Michael fighting a dragon at the top of the capital on the left, the elegant bird near the ground on the right of the door, and another dragon at the bottom of the left-hand capital.

Inside the church has been rather altered over the years, with the introduction of Baroque elements in the mid 18th century and a partial restoration during the 1950s.
