Church of San Domenico - Spoleto
Very particular, a building in white and pink stone, a type not found in Spoleto, but present in Umbria, for example in Santa Chiara in Assisi or in Santa Prassede in Todi. The current church, originally dedicated to the Savior, was built between the second half of the 13th and the first years of the 14th century in the local Gothic style, and annexed to the Dominican convent already erected in 1247. The simple facade is unadorned by the rose window, which was never realized, while on the right side there is a large portal with bundled columns, in whose lunette is a painting depicting the Savior, the work of Perino Cesarei, dated 1591. The interior presents the usual scheme of the churches of the mendicant orders: a single Latin cross nave, with a large transept and a tribune on which chapels open.
