    Although years ago is in the process of restoration, it has exploited enough, especially in the summer with recreational activities. It is essential to visit the oratory, a jewel in their design and materials... Priceless

    The place restored this very cute, almost all weekends there are fairs to visit and free kids activities recommend it in that aspect, in all ways would be good that they do also arrange the building is complete and return their facilities at the Municipal School of art dramatic Angelina Pagano who every year fighting for the own building so much promise.
