There is a single nave, altars dating back to the eighteenth century, first of all the richly carved (1711) designed to contain the beautiful Deposition of the Cross by Luca Signorelli, commissioned by brotherhood of Santa Maria in 1516. In 1998 the church, after careful restoration by the Municipality of Umbertide, was transformed in the Museum of Santa Croce. Among the most interesting works, in addition to the Signorelli altarpiece, are a painting by Pomarancio depicting the Madonna and Child in Glory with Angels and Saints (1577) and a 1528 wooden sculpture of St. Roch attributed to Romano Alberti, called Il Nero, from the nearby church of San Francesco. The former church of Santa Croce is also used for recordings of classical works, with the participation of internationally renowned masters, and it is the stage of prestigious music festivals.
