Santa Maria della Consolazione

Local nameSanta Maria della Consolazione
LocationTodi, Italy

Santa Maria della Consolazione is a Renaissance-style pilgrimage church in Todi, Italy.

The centralized, symmetric plan, surmounted by a tall dome, distinguishes this Renaissance church, from the more common elongated basilica or Latin-cross designs.

Construction begun in 1508, on the flank of the city hill, just outside the walls. The design is often erroneously attributed to Bramante. But construction was begun by Cola da Caprarola, supposedly aided by Baldassarre Peruzzi It has a Greek cross plan: three apses are polygonal and the one on the north side is semicircular.
