Palace dei Priori, window circa13th century
We visited the Palace dei Priori which was built from the 13th-18th centuries and incorporated some other buildings, including 2 towers. The upper floors of the Palace are the National Gallery of Umbria, Italy's richest art collection. A maze of rooms with all sorts of paintings and sculpture.
