Standing proudly above the ancient town of Citta di Castello is the marvelous Belvedere Sanctuary. Distinctive in its pale ochre colour set against the green of the woodlands, It too, like Canoscio a little to the south, is brightly illuminated at night, as stands out against the clear dark sky for miles around.
The sanctuary, dedicated to the Madonna, was build in 1684 and is a typical Baroque style building of the period. Once you enter the church through its semicircular portico you can see the Martyrdom of St. Vincent painted by Giovanni Ventura Borghesi in 1699. The churches position also offers spectacular views of the town and the Alte Tevere Valle beyond.
