Spello

Although the lovely little city of Spello has medieval characteristics, it was a Roman Colony and has kept many monuments of that time: the Theatre, the Amphitheatre, the Thermal baths and the so called Arch of August, old entrance gate of the City. The most important church is the church of  Santa Maria Maggiore (XIIXIII century), with many works of art inside: on the left side of the nave the magnificient Baglioni chapel decorated with frescoes by Pintoricchio. Then there are important paintings by Perugino and an old pavement done with majolica from Deruta.

Just ouside of Spello there is the splendid Villa Fidelia (XVI century), built where there was the famous Temple of  Venus, the Theatre and the Thermal Baths: inside there is a rich collection of paintings, sculptures, antiques.
