  • A marvel! A medieval jewel with frescoed interiors and decorated with late Gothic masters. If you love simple churches that don't lose

  • The Church of Santa Maria in Castello, also known as La Sagra, is the oldest of the city having been erected, for legendary tradition in 752, although it appears the result of a reconstruction in the early 12th century at the instigation of Matilda of Canossa. The present Church is Romanesque with Renaissance façade. The portal is Romanesque church compound and bears a carved sandstone bezel with the crucifixion scene. No doubt surprising is the Interior that has very small, in contrast with the grandeur of the exterior, especially the Romanesque Bell Tower about 50 meters; very nice is also the Chapel of St. Catherine of Alexandria by fifteenth-century Gothic style

  • The Church has ancient origins, but was rebuilt in Romanesque style in the 12th century. In 1515 was later shortened and shortened by about twenty meters and was rebuilt in Renaissance style façade. The old Romanesque building still retains a beautiful bas-relief of the crucifixion above the entrance portal. The Interior, though very limited, due to the reduction in size, is very collected and suggestive. On the back wall stands a spectacular pulpit of the 12th century with reliefs symbolizing the evangelists. On the bottom there is a 13th-century fresco depicting the Epiphany.
