  • Together with Saint Francis, Santa Maria della Visitazione is the most valuable ancient Church of Cascia (certainly not old, and it cannot be otherwise, the Basilica of Santa Rita, since Rita was canonized only in 1900). Both, unfortunately, have not yet been put back into safety after an earthquake in 2016 and are unable to access; and instead of San Francisco, Santa Maria has a particularly attractive, with a façade too wide and almost deformed. In both the hope of being able to change it back as soon as possible.

  • Unfortunately it was not possible to visit this church, as it closed for security reasons-after the earthquake-last. The Church is one of the places connected with the cult of Saint Rita, because according to local tradition, the little Rita, she was baptized, lacking in Roccaporena, birthplace of Santa Rita, a church with a baptismal font.

  • This important Church was rebuilt several times and by tradition is the one where she was baptized Saint Rita of Cascia. On an artistic level, the best things are the various cycles of frescoes inside, largely of the 15th century, while the composite façade is less beautiful compared to other churches of the same period. Devoid of artistic value, but very well done is the fixed crib that is located in the small room on the left next to the Church, take a look at that
