Chiesa di San Matteo Agli Armeni

It is located in Northwest Perugia, just outside the XIV Century walls in Colle di Pastina, inside the Monumental Complex of San Matteo degli Armeni that hosted an Armenian monks community of San Basilio’s rule, from the XIII to the XVI Century, escaped from the iconoclast persecution. The former monastery is now a Municipal Library. The architecture of the church recalls some peruginian temples as those of San Bevignate, San Francesco al prato and Monteluce. It has a romantic-gothic style with gothic lancet windows and the inner is divided in two bay, with cross-vaulted ceiling and red-rust ribs.
