Chiesa di San Biagio

Go to my journey


The church of San Biagio is a modest but interesting example of Spello’s historical and artistic heritage. It stands on Via Giulia and belongs to the parish of San Lorenzo. Probably built in the mid-13th century, it housed a hospital run by lay people who were descendants of the founder. There’s not much information about this institution: the earliest documents date back to 1430, while after 1460 they become increasingly scarce.

The most recent restoration work dates back to 1979 and focused on consolidating the structure and maintaining its original appearance. The church was built with white-pink limestone from Mount Subasio, has a simple gabled roof and is rectangular in shape with a large truss in the centre of the ceiling.

The interior decoration is certainly not attributable to famous artists but, given its limited dimensions, the pictorial decor is by no means poor. The building has two frescoes attributed to Bartolomeo da Miranda, a painter of the school of Spoleto, who worked in Spello in the second quarter of the 15th century; on the high altar you will see a 17th-century altarpiece and traces of frescoes on the walls by local craftsmen.
