  • The Church is located in the square at the top of a short flight of steps. Baroque was built in the late 17th century on the ruins of an ancient Benedictine monastery, of which one can still see the belfry with its tiled dial. The exterior is distinguished, above all, for the presence of the ExtraDOS and the white dome series of domes, along the spine of the Church, which are also estradossate. The façade, which is also white, highlights, at the bottom, a beautiful wooden portal and two smaller ones at the sides; over these last two niches containing statues of Saints; at the top, narrower than the bottom, above the main entrance. a large window. The Interior is richly decorated, has a Latin cross and is divided into three aisles with four chapels on either side. Beauty affects the central altar in marble and behind, the golden body, as well as numerous altarpieces, including the Madonna and child with Saints Michael and Anthony of Padua from the 16th century. Finally, that part of the floor is built with marble from the ruins of Villa Jovis of the Roman Emperor Tiberius.

  • Beautiful church, maintained very well. Overlooks the piazzetta famous for around the world. Especially nice the altar with the organ placed in the apse.
