Corso Cavour 126 - 06034 Foligno
The St. Philip Church is situated along a charming street with arcades of the seventeenth century, at the top of Nocera Umbra.
Between 1864 and 1868 the building was erected in neo-Gothic style, designed by the architect Luigi Poletti thanks to Monsignor Francesco Amoni’s finances. The porticoed facade is decorated by a large rose window flanked by the symbols of the four evangelists (Eagle, Angel, Lion and Taurus). The interior retains, on the high altar, a painting depicting the Death of St. Philip with apparition of the Madonna by Francesco Grandi. In the sacristy there is an eighteenth-century Beheading of John the Baptist.
