Trevi, cubed…

As you make your way up the hill to Trevi you pass through miles and miles of olive groves and once you are up there you are treated to incredible views off over the Plain of Clitunno.

We always drop by the TI Center in the town and Trevi’s had the most incredible ceilings to greet us.

Then it was off to investigate the town.

We ate lunch at La Vecchia Posta in Piazza Mazzini.

With this view of the 13th century Torre Civica.

We enjoyed the Civic Museum connected to the Gothic San Francesco Church. Part of it was about olive oil production and the other was religious art. While we were inside it poured rain, but I liked the skylight that connected the old church and the newer museum building.

An alter piece by Lo Spagna from 1522. Part of it (the yellow area) was dispersed in the 19th century and is housed in the Tucson Museum in Arizona. (Send it back Arizona Trevi needs it!)

This painted cross is from the 14th century.

There was also the Saint Emiliano Duomo to explore.

Luckily we had not planned to visit Assisi the same weekend…(can you imagine the crowds if you were there the same time as the Pope?)

As we wandered we would find such interesting artifacts like the remains of a wayside chapel (Santa Reparata) from 1578 with some frescoes behind the plastic.
I thought this building was interesting. No decoration except the intricate trompe l’oeil painting.

Also liked the eagles on the war monument.
