The white-robed sisters are often kneeling inside praying, so you'll most likely only be able to poke your head through the heavy curtains and automatic glass doors for a respectfully quick glance at the 15th-century frescoes inside this tiny chapel. Matteo da Gualdo, who was responsible for the painting on the outside wall, frescoed the scenes on the altar wall, and Pierantonio Mezzastris took care of the ceiling and side walls in 1477, with miracle scenes of St. Anthony Abbot on the left and St. James on the right. The three saints frescoed on the entrance wall were once attributed to a young Perugino, but these days it seems more likely that L'Ingegno did them.
