Porch of Our Lady of Loreto - XVI-XIX Centuries

The porch, 300 meters long, was built in order to provide shelter to the faithful who were going to the front of the venerated image of Our Lady of Loreto, kept inside the church of Spoleto. The construction was financed by the richest families of Spoleto, which are seen the arms painted between the arches, and lasted until the final years of the '500 to 1802.

In the background the "Borgaggio", more properly Borgo San Matteo, one of the four villages added to the city of Spoleto in the medieval period, then enclosed by a new city wall in 1296.
