Also in spoleto, as in other towns of Umbria, the religious buildings are the real stars of the city. The imposing Romanesque basilicas and in pariticular the Cathedral built in the twelfth century that suddenly appears in front of visitors will leave you speechless. The Assumption Cathedral houses Renaissance frescoes by painters Filippo Lippi and Pinturicchio. It also houses a precious Byzantine icon and a letter written by st. Francis of Assisi.
