The square is where you'll find the city's cathedral, a 15th-century edifice that houses Perugia's prized relic, the Virgin Mary's wedding ring. This treasure is locked away inside a sequence of 15 boxes and brought out once a year on July 30. The Gothic Palazzo dei Priori is an impressive and ornate medieval palace housing the Umbrian National Gallery, with a sizeable collection of medieval and Renaissance Italian art. One of Perugia's most notable artworks, Raphael's fresco from 1505, can be found in a small chapel next to the church of San Severo off the Piazza Piccinino.
