The Oratorio is just outside the village of Morra. It was built in 1420 around the norman Pieve di Santa Maria for the Confraternita abd enlarge in 1507 as the inscriptions tell us. It is a real artistic treasure trove. The interior is decorated with a series of frescoes by Luca Signorelli which date from 1507 and 1570. It is said that the artist stopped off in Morra on his way from Cortona to Città di Castello when he was going to work on his commissioned pieces. The façade has a main front door above which there is a lunette decorated with a woven pattern. There is one large window and two small ones that were opened in the 17th century. The interior is covered by a beamed ceiling and at the far end we find the beautiful niche, carved and decorated by Signorelli. At the top we see God the Father with the Book of Life in his hand and two angels by his side, Saint Mary Magdalen and another saint. There is another large stone niche on the left wall where the Madonna della Misericordia has been painted
