  • Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie but called Santa Caterina to the nuns that began building. You can donate 5 x mille to culture with your tax return to restore and preserve one of the wonders of Casale M.? If in doubt try to enter it when you can and look around, all this must not be lost. Historical notions here are engineers.

  • You don't want to miss a visit to this wonderful Church that holds within it a wonderful, unexpected, wooden choir. Strikes and saddens the State faced the frescoes of the dome, eaten from moisture. Need for immediate recovery. A great little gem to cherish, love and respect.

  • Coming on foot from the car park in Piazza Castello is the first church we encountered. It was consecrated around the twenties of 1700 and is called Santa Caterina because originally was part of the Dominican monastery of Saint Catherine of Siena. Consists of two classrooms: the outer one overlooking Piazza Castello and the inner one, place of prayer of the sisters, also known as Nun's choir, directly connected to the central core of the convent. The rococo façade has a slightly curved shape formed by columns and pilasters that frame the beautiful portal overlooking the square. The Interior is illuminated by a Greek cross shaped Windows and is entirely frescoed. Rich marbles, the altar is surmounted by a marble sculpture of the Virgin. But what impressed us most, is the condition in which they are found those that were once beautiful frescoes. Moisture, like a cancer is eating the walls and as always trying to run for cover when the situation seems now out of hand. We hope in the near future to review them in better condition! Worth visiting anyway.

  • Absolutely to be restored. Spectacular baroque dome and perspective. Really interesting for professionals and tourists prepared to comparisons. Prof. Paleari, Milan
