Savor a moment of peace and stillness at Oratorio dei Pellegrini, a tiny chapel featuring beautiful 15th-century frescoes. Paintings cover the ceiling, altar wall, side walls, and entrance wall, all depicting religious scenes from the stories of St. Anthony Abbot and St. James. While some of the artists remain unknown, we do know Matteo da Gualdo and Pierantonio Mezzastris were among the painters who contributed. In this off-the-radar church, you can view the frescoes more closely than similar works in more popular locations.

Stunningly beautiful murals, especially I liked the fresco by Matteo da Gualdo with Madonna and pilgrims. Photograph strictly prohibited, in order not to spoil the frescos. Be sure to visit before or after the Cathedral
