The building of the small and beautiful church of Madonna della Luce was ordered by city of Perugia with the intention that it keeps the miraculous image of the Holy Virgin by Tiberio di Assisi. The church was built from 1513-1519 in one of the most beautiful locations in the city, in an environment inhabited by very religious people. Facade of this single-nave church is very elegant and is decorated with a portal and very unusual rose window.
Next to it stands the church of San Luca Evangelista, from the 16th century, which served as a church of the Supreme Military Order of Maltese. The document mentions that on this site there was already a church in the Middle Ages.
Opposite the two churches stands one strange tin house, probably from the late Middle Ages.
