Palazzo dei Priori

The Palazzo dei Priori has fantastic museums. One of its most important museums is the 30 roomed Galleria Nazionale dell’Umbria where you can explore artwork from the 13th century resembling Byzantine art and works by Pinturicchio and Il Perugino.
The palazzo also houses what is considered by many to be most attractive bank worldwide, The Nobile Collegio del Cambio which is composed of the Legist Chamber whose wooden stalls were created by Giampiero Zuccari in the 1600s, the Audience Chamber frescoed by Il Perugino and the Chapel of Giovanni Battista embellished with paintings by Il Perugino’s student, Giannicola di Paolo. In the same palazzo the Nobile Collegio della Mercanzia features a stunning Audience Chamber panelled in wood,by northern craftsmen. The Sala dei Notari on Piazza IV Novembre in the same palazzo was constructed at the end of the 13th century and was the meeting point for members of the nobility. It is embellished with Romanesque arches frescoed with passages from the Bible and Aesop’s fables.
