  • The Church of santa restituta, now desecrated, rises above the crypt and jail of santa, North African origin, and which tradition says was the mother of sant Eusebius Bishop of vercelli. The crypt is an underground natural, partly dug into the rock, used by man since ancient times. Has more rooms, some of which are used as cisterns, and which were used as a place of worship since the early years of Christianity. There is a column which would be linked to the Holy before his martyrdom, a fresco of the Byzantine era, the only one that remains, and various niches with sketches of altars. The crypt was used during World War II as bomb shelters. In front of it, one morning in February of 1943 were killed 50 people by bombing anglo Americans. A plaque on the outside of the Church recalls this episode
