Piazza Duomo 24 - 05018 Orvieto
The church of Maria SS. delle Grazie is situated under the hill of Montegabbione: the typical Renaissance name of this church clearly testifies its character of votive temple; also the external architectural style, in the shape of a Latin cross and the cylindrical dome are considered renaissance while, inside, altar and stucco are characterized by Baroque style.

The sacristy and house were added later to the original building: sign that began to acquire some importance as a "local" sanctuary. Remarkable the fresco placed above the altar, representing a "Madonna del Latte", perhaps the school of Perugino. The landowner benefit of the Collegiate was annexed to this church, which pulverized in the last century as a result of the forfeiture laws of church property.
