  • On the hill opposite that on which stands the majestic Palazzo Farnese, as if to contrast the spiritual power to that age-old, stands a bit apart this church founded in 1621 by the Card. Odoardo Farnese. Not particularly interesting architecturally, holds valuable works of painting as a valuable Guido Reni (Virgin with child and saints Joseph and Teresa of Avila). Important the panorama that spans the Palazzo Farnese and the village of Caprarola.

  • Located on the hillside with the façade facing north, just across from the beautiful Palazzo Farnese and a pentagonal mole deep ravine covered by dense vegetation that could become a special nature reserve. The card. Alessandro Farnese built in this isolated hill a casino for its spiritual retreats, before it got to build the "Casina del Piacere" in the Park near the Palace. He had already thought about the construction of a large church but will his great-grandson card. Odoardo to instruct the architect Girolamo Rainaldi to design the new church with the annexed convent, which will end in the first half of the 600. You can't visit the Farnese Palazzo Farnese without discovering this gem. Inside, basic but welcoming, important works like a canvas of St. Teresa by Guido Reni, Lanfranco's ... From the square in front of the Church, overlooking the deep ravine, you can admire a spectacular view of the town of Caprarola, old houses/tower built on tufa, the medieval quarter and the impressive Palazzo Farnese that dominates everything else. Caprarola, therefore, offers a full day between art, architecture and history but also traditions.

  • I visited last Sunday afternoon, travel. In the morning there was a wedding. Outside the Church, on the outside, it looked like we were on the morning of January 1. Evidently, no one had bothered to take a broom, a sack and a bin and clean the square after the wedding. We wanted so much to accommodate tourists and believers in the afternoon in a more seemly? I swear if I had a broom in the car, I would have cleaned the yard!
